An Insight to Inspection: What can Primary ECTs expect when Ofsted calls (Face to Face)

  • ECTs may fear the pressure of an Ofsted inspection, probably more than their more experienced colleagues.
  • This workshop will allay those fears, clarify exactly what happens on an inspection, and look and myths and realities around OFSTED inspections

It will provide participants with an opportunity to consider the activities that inspectors undertake when inspecting a school and the evidence they collect to arrive at their judgements. The course will focus on the new inspection framework that has been in place from September 2019 and how that has been working in practice, and will also raise participants’ awareness of how Ofsted’s research and other publications can help an ECT develop their teaching and preparation for their future career.
