This is a really interesting time for me and my colleagues at Ofsted as we shape how we think Ofsted inspections can add the most value in vulnerable children’s lives from January 2018 (the new inspection framework will be published this autumn).
We’re approaching the dreaded exam period. Children and young people up and down the country will soon find out whether all their hard work has paid off.
Having been at Ofsted for more than a year, I want to have a conversation about the big issues that social workers and other social care professionals deal with in their working day.
At the end of February, we were delighted to publish Ofsted’s new social care common inspection framework (SCCIF). Simply put, it brings together all our inspection guidance for 8 different types of settings into one straightforward framework.
