Ofsted’s draft Education Inspection Framework (EIF), currently out for consultation, includes a proposed new graded area of Personal Development which includes: careers information advice and guidance and preparation for progression; citizenship, equality, diversity and fundamental British values; physical and mental health and wellbeing and enrichment activity: broader student development to help them discover and develop interests and talents.

Delegates will hear how Ofsted will inspect Personal Development in the new EIF and explore how you can best support your students with their personal development. There will be an opportunity to find out more about AoC’s proposed Charter for Student Engagement.
