Ofsted Inspection of ACL - Consultation

Ofsted has just launched a consultation about the future of adult and community learning inspection.  

The existing Common Inspection Framework 2009 covers 16+, apprenticeships, Train to Gain, nextstep, provision in judicial services, employability programmes as well as informal adult learning. This consultation suggests that the same framework will be directly applied to ACL. This assumption had already been made by the majority of people in the sector, but Ofsted are now formally seeking the views of interested parties on issues including:


  • How providers are selected for inspection (based on performance review).
  • Reduced notice period of three weeks.
  • Inspecting all aspects of an organisation’s provision at one time.


The closing date for the consultation is 29 December 2009. Full details can be found on the Ofsted website.
