A day in the life of an early years inspector
Watching inspections and checking that the process is working well is part of my role as a Senior HMI. I shadow inspections of our new Ofsted Inspectors (OIs) to review the quality of their work.
On a four-day further education and skills inspection there’s a lot of evidence to collect and many people to speak with when reaching an accurate judgement. These are intensive days for the inspection team and the college.
Let me begin by wishing you all a very happy New Year. I hope you had the opportunity to relax and recharge your batteries over the holiday period.
