Detail

The handbook for the inspection of further education and skills is in two parts. Part one is conducting further education and skills inspections. It is guidance for inspectors and providers on the preparation for, and the implementation and conduct of, inspections. Part two is the evaluation schedule for the inspection of further education and skills. It provides the main considerations for evaluation under each of the common inspection framework’s principal criteria, and the grade characteristics for each aspect and for overall effectiveness.
