Equality, Diversity and prepared for inspection

E&D features highly in the 2012 inspection framework. Be inspection ready.

Reasons for attending this programme:
How has the inspection of E&D changed? What will inspectors be looking for? Are there any lessons to learn from the outcomes of the previous inspection framework? What key principles and approaches do you, your staff and governors now need to adopt to be successful? How effective is the action you take to ‘narrow the gap’, for example recruitment and outcomes between different groups of learners? These and other key themes will be explored in this highly practical and interactive workshop. It looks in detail at how different staff teams contribute to effective inspection outcomes for E&D. This essential training will help you to get to grips with the new inspection of E&D and maximise the benefits of equality for your organisation.

What is this training about?
E&D features highly in the new 2012 common inspection framework, and impacts on all three key inspection judgments. Inspectors will focus even more closely on the impact of equality and diversity on learners and whether providers are effectively narrowing the gap in achievement between groups of learners. This event will be of interest to E&D managers, quality managers, strategic leads for E&D, senior managers and all staff with an interest in the inspection of equality and diversity.

During this programme you learn:

  • The key changes to the inspection of E&D and the practical implications of these
  • The key messages and outcomes of the previous inspection framework
  • What the best of the best are doing in relation to E&D
  • How to evaluate your own practice, and decide on organisational priorities and actions for improvement
  • What inspectors will be looking for in relation to the new duties to publish equality information and objectives
  • How to prepare staff to be ‘inspection ready’


  • All staff are thoroughly prepared for inspection of E&D
  • Organisational performance improves
  • Benefits of E&D are maximised and impact positively on inspection outcomes
  • Improved reputation, becoming the employer and provider of choice in the locality

    Jos Frederiks NLP Trainer

  • This course has been worth every penny. Fast doesn’t mean lacking in quality. The sheer tonnage of information is astonishing. It’s so worth it. You will learn a lot even if you are a very experienced teacher and you will enjoy it
    Dr Sharon Ney

  • It doesn’t matter how experience you are, go for it. The training was the most magic. Teaching must go over to learning and we in school have to take responsibility for that. I will use this in my work as a consultant helping schools to improve. Many many thanks for a great course.
    Anita Svennson,Swedish Educational consultant

  • This course helped me widen my ideas about teaching and learning. It prompted lots of questions about how we should approach learning. Experiential learning is profound and fun. Thank you

  • I thought I knew how to design a course. After attending this training it’s totally changed my view about learning design. If you are a teacher this course is mandatory for your career.

  • I may wobble but I move forward with a giggle into all that is possible. The course has accelerated my own slow and steady learning into the amazing and continued possibility of learning
    Vicky Morgan,College lecturer

  • This was loads of fun and I loved it. Fun and interactive ways of learning and how to apply that to teaching. Some may think that its only for teachers but we are all teachers in different areas. This course totally surpassed my expectations and all my goals were achieved. Creative teaching makes you want to teach. I highly recommend it so that more good teachers equal more confident kids. Just do it!
