Event Summary



Date and Time

Tuesday 8 June 2021 (13:00 to 15:00)


Free (£30.00 non-members)

Following positive feedback from our event ‘An Ofsted Update’ in November 2020, we are delighted to welcome Ian Smith (Senior HMI, West Midlands) who will provide updated feedback on Ofsted’s monitoring visits this academic year and share what is known at the time about Ofsted's inspection plans for 2021/22.

This event is designed for staff who have quality assurance and quality improvement responsibilities within their organisations. Independent learning providers and staff with an employer engagement remit will find this session particularly informative because Ian has a specific interest in WBL and Apprenticeship provision.

The session will be facilitated by Karen Plowman (Head of Professional Development) and Dr Alison Scott (Lead Professional Development Advisor). There will be ample time for questions, plus break-outs will allow for the sharing of practice and networking. Do take this opportunity to refresh your knowledge of the key challenges presented by the Education Inspection Framework, to collaborate and to have your questions answered in a supportive environment. We look forward to welcoming you to the session.
