This training event is for senior managers preparing to take on the role of a nominee at Ofsted’s full or short inspections.

Judging students’ personal development, progress, achievement and outcomes

How teaching, learning and assessment are inspected

Other key topics raised by delegates, e.g. the inspection of Prevent and safeguarding
