Ofsted Inspectors start leading short inspections

2017 brings change to Ofsted, with Amanda Spielman taking up post as Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector.

January also sees the introduction of some new ways of working for Ofsted. It is now over a year since they ended their Inspection Service Provider contracts and introduced Ofsted Inspectors (OIs), contracted directly with Ofsted, into their workforce. The vast majority are serving practitioners in schools, bringing with them current front-line experience. OIs now number over 1,200 and are an integral and essential part of the inspection workforce.

Up until now OIs have been leading and working successfully alongside Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI) day in day out on section 5 inspections. It has now been decided that from this month their role should expand to include leading short inspections. Having successfully piloted this approach in London and the East Midlands they are rolling out this way of working across the country.
