The Learning and Skills Act 2000 gives the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) the responsibility for the inspection of colleges in the further education sector and requires that such inspections be carried out jointly with the Adult Learning Inspectorate (ALI). The Act also requires Ofsted to carry out area-wide inspections of provision for 16–19 year olds, with the assistance of the ALI as necessary. Between September 2001 and June 2002, Ofsted and the ALI jointly inspected 73 general further education, tertiary and specialist colleges, 27 sixth form colleges, 12 dance and drama institutions and 11 independent specialist colleges catering for students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. In the same period Ofsted led 23 area-wide inspections. This is the first joint annual report by the inspectorates, covering the period from September 2001 to June 2002.
