Common Inspection Framework 2012

01 Sep 2011 - 24 Nov 2011

Interest groups: Employers, Further education and skills providers, Learners, Others

The Common Inspection Framework for further education and skills is devised by Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector (HMCI) in line with the Education and Inspections Act 2006 and informs all of Ofsted’s further education and skills inspections. It sets out the judgements that inspectors will make during the inspection of education and training in England for learners over the age of 16, except those in school sixth forms or higher education.

This consultation invites your views on our proposed changes to help us shape the revised inspection arrangements, which, subject to the successful passage of the Education Bill, will commence in September 2012.

To find out more about the consultation go to Common Inspection Framework 2012 or see Responses to Ofsted's consultation on FE and skills from September 2012.
