Inspections need not be a terrifying prospect for schools or training providers. If you are focused on making the best possible provision for all of your learners, are knowledgable about your strengths and areas for development, and are implementing effective strategies to continue to make improvements, you probably have little to worry about.

If you would like to feel even more confident that you are presenting your establishment in the best light to an external evaluator, we can help you check this in a supportive and developmental way.

We can help by:

  • reviewing your preparations for receiving 'the call'

  • making sure you're maintaining key documents in an accessible way

  • providing an objective review of your documentation, especially self evaluation and improvement planning

  • provide leaders with experience of being interviewed

  • moderate your judgements about the quality of teaching through observation, work scrutiny and data analysis


We have experience of working with mainstream and special schools, in primary and secondary phases, as well as with training providers in the further education sector.


The team have particular expertise in supporting special schools, pupil referral units and other types of alternative provision.

We are specialists in helping schools monitor and improve attendance.
