Ofsted’s decision to bring in-house the management and oversight of all inspection activity aims to introduce greater flexibility to the way we work and across the inspector population. Our changes facilitate increased knowledge sharing between inspectors and enable much stronger working links between Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI) and contracted inspectors. In turn we believe this will help us to continue to improve the quality and consistency of our inspection activities.
