Government funding means OFSTED inspections. All institutions should be aiming for grade 1 – Outstanding. Skills Office has the experience and expertise to guide ITPs and new Employer Providers, helping you meet OFSTED requirements and prepare for these inspections. We share regular updates on OFSTED requirements and areas of focus, and publish analysis of recent inspection reports. We offer inspection training conducted by HMI inspectors, perform an annual mock inspection, and develop bespoke 3-day response plans for you.
