"This commentary is the first in a series on Quality to help the sector respond effectively to the consultations on the new inspection and quality improvement frameworks and to prepare for new ways of working under the Learning and Skills Council. Colleges and other partners in the sector have raised a number of questions about how the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) framework in schools works. Those questions provide the framework for this commentary. It aims to demystify the terminology and processes. It explains how Ofsted in schools currently approaches areas such as inspection evidence, self-evaluation and value for money. We recognise of course that these terms may be interpreted differently for the new post-16 inspection framework! This commentary is not an official Ofsted briefing, but is written for a college audience by an Ofsted registered inspector who also works as an FEFC part-time inspector. A list of key documents and appropriate websites is included for further reference. We hope you find this commentary helpful" - page 1.
