Ofsted are giving us all the opportunity to have our say on the new proposal for the inspection framework (see here). If you have not completed the consultation questionnaire yet you should! All educational settings are being encouraged to speak up about the inspection process (yes that even includes FE). I know the sceptics among you will think what’s the point they’ll just do what they want anyway. Well there is a point, we can choose to do nothing or we can all show that we do care and are concerned on how an inspection is done. Yes it does require you to read the proposal but it is an easy read (and not too lengthy). If you want to just tick boxes you can, but hopefully some of the questions you come across will urge you to comment. Please don’t choose to do nothing, FE needs to change many things and one thing I personally want to see change is the observation process, namely the grading system (see here). You may have other areas to focus on, so get a move on we only have till the 5th December!
