Target group: Childminders, Pre-Schools and Nurseries

 Course description:

Ofsted inspections can be quite daunting events. We know that thoughtful planning and preparation for your Ofsted inspection sees the best possible outcomes. In July 2015, Ofsted published revised inspection framework called “Common inspection framework: education, skills and early years”. This comes into effect from September 2015. It sets out how Ofsted will inspect your setting and details the evaluation schedule, or the descriptors, against which you will be judged.
