The further development of the ITE inspection framework

  • Ofsted’s Executive Board have confirmed that the current ITE inspection framework will be extended for a further 12 months until December 2019. This will enable the small number of constrained inspections of newly accredited SCITTs, due to take place in 2019, to happen. Inspections of other new SCITTs, due from 2020 onwards, and new ITE in FE provision, validated by HEIs, will be part of a new inspection framework and cycle. This decision creates the time and space for the sector to focus on the crucial areas of recruitment, retention and workload and for the research and development work, required to underpin a new ITE inspection framework, to take place. A new ITE inspection framework will be introduced in the academic year 2019/20, after the introduction of the Education and Inspection Framework (EIF).
  • ITE inspections in 2019 will focus on the small number of constrained inspections of newly accredited SCITTs and any re-inspections needed as a result of requires improvement and/or inadequate inspection judgements at stage 2 in autumn 2018.
