Consultation description

We are proposing revisions to the national minimum standards for residential accommodation for 16- to 18-year-olds in the further education (FE) sector, to bring them up to date.

Ofsted inspects against these standards and providers can use them to assess their own services, to train staff, and as a guide for parents and students.

The standards apply to:

  • further education colleges
  • sixth-form colleges
  • FE designated institutions
  • 16 to 19 academies
  • residential specialist colleges required to comply by conditions of funding imposed by the Secretary of State
