Your Ofsted Inspection3.5 hours Virtual

This course is delivered by our specialist Early Years Consultant (please see bio below)

This training session aims to build your confidence in your Ofsted inspection. It will focus on the key inspection activities which will take place and how you can use these to showcase your provision’s strengths. We will consider the knowledge staff need to support children accurately every day and the ways in which they can discuss this at inspection. We will explore staff well-being and how to support everyone in your team throughout an inspection. Finally, we will discuss and use the inspection handbook to self-evaluate your provision so you know children are getting the best start every time they come into your provision.
