The new Education Inspection Framework (EIF) will be published in September 2019 and there is a much greater focus on curriculum. This timely event will follow on from Ofsted’s response to the recent consultation and will help you to prepare for the new EIF, giving you greater clarity and guidance on what the new Framework will mean in practice.

At the event you will have the opportunity to hear from some of the pilot colleges on their experiences to date including a focus on the strands’ curriculum intent, implementation and impact. We have allowed plenty of time for questions and discussions, with both keynotes and workshops, so that you can leave with lots of ideas to implement in your college.

Benefits of attending

  • Examine in detail what the new EIF means for the sector with Richard Beynon HMI and David Corke from AoC
  • Learn from two college Principals that have been through the EIF pilot and hear their thoughts around the focus on intent, implementation and impact
  • Hear case studies from Barnsley College and Oldham College about how they are approaching the new framework
  • Take advantage of the networking opportunities and discuss what the EIF means for your college
