Why not spend some time working with us?

If you are considering contracting as an Ofsted inspector, you can register your interest with us on this page.

There are a number of requirements you must meet in order to be considered.

If you meet the requirements, please answer the questions below. We will keep your details for two years and contact you if any suitable Ofsted inspector vacancies become available.

You can find out about the work and pay of a contracted Ofsted inspector in our public guidance.

There is currently a high volume of interest in the following remits. Therefore, we are pausing any new registrations for contracted Ofsted inspectors for these remits whilst we process them:

  • Schools (Primary)
  • Schools (Pupil Referral Unit)
  • Schools (Secondary)
  • Schools (Special Educational Needs and Area SEND inspections)

You can still register your interest for all other remits.
