Description

Managing Early Years Inspections

We recognise the importance for schools in managing a successful outcome to inspection, and are pleased to repeat this valuable opportunity for Early Years leaders and headteachers to gain the support and training to help this happen.

The course is run by ODST but is open to all schools. It takes place over 2 dates with face-to-face taught input and with a distance learning task in between.

It will give you the chance to:

  • establish a thorough understanding of the purpose and nature of the inspection process

  • learn how to apply the latest school inspection handbook and its descriptions of outcomes and provision in Early Years

  • design trails and inspection activities to test and evaluate the impact of your work

  • seek support for your thinking in your role

  • learn, share and discuss the key and current issues facing Early Years settings.

Course Leader: Jackie Cousins

Jackie was a senior managing inspector for an inspection service provider for 6 years, leading their inspection of Early Years, training inspectors, and working with HMI to shape Early Years inspection practice. She is the Adviser for Early Years for two local authorities and continues to advise and train inspectors.
