ofsted launch consultation on the inspection of further educational colleges

2 September 2011
This week Ofsted have launched a new consultation on proposals to revise the inspection framework in relation to further education.

The changes are designed to streamline the inspection process. If implemented there will be fewer judgments but an increase in lesson observations. There will also be a greater emphasis on the elements that have the biggest impact on improving standards and increasing the job prospects of students.

Those judged good will be re-inspected within six years with those judged outstanding no longer being routinely inspected.

The proposals marry neatly with the inspection guidance and framework for schools, making it easier to compare and contrast educational providers. Ultimately, this assists both parents and students alike to make more informed decisions about post-16 education providers.
