Further course details
The course helps participants gain an understanding of an outstanding inspection framework and an understanding of how close to this measure their individual setting is. Using a range of practical tools and the latest thinking from OFSTED, participants will have a clear pathway for action planning back at the setting. The training is very practical in nature, giving participants the opportunity to discuss their current practice and judgements with others and learn to apply key inspection criteria. Participants are asked to bring along any materials such as early year’s action plan, current and historic data including RAISE ONLINE, monitoring evidence.
