10:00 am - 11:30 am


This interactive webinar will tell you all you need to know to prepare and succeed at your first New Provider Monitoring Visit as a new provider on the Apprenticeship provider and assessment register (APAR). We will do this in the context of the Education Inspection Framework (EIF), introduced by Ofsted in September 2019. 

The webinar will set out the framework for the visits and some key considerations to bear in mind. We will look at the planning process leading up to a NPMV before examining the key aspects of your provision that inspectors will want to get under the skin of in making their judgements about your progress against each of the mandatory themes.
