New teacher training inspections to focus on the ITE curriculum

Ofsted publishes new framework and handbook bringing ITE inspections in line with the education inspection framework (EIF).

Please click on this link for details of the new OfSTED ITE inspection framework and handbook.

Key points include:

  1. Inspections will take place in a single four day visit in the Spring and Summer terms, with three days’ notice
  2. A distinction is drawn between formative and summative assessment
  3. A transition statement (page 38 of the handbook, under ‘good’ ) to recognise that new curricula may not have been fully implemented because of Covid 19.
