Session Title

We need to talk about Quality: using data to drive and evidence quality for Ofsted inspections

Session Overview

Learner data – you collect it anyway and it’s one of your best assets. Using real examples from Ofsted inspection reports, this session will cover;


  • Best practice in using the data to improve quality and outcomes for your learners
  • How Ofsted use data for inspection and how to prepare and manage that data
  • Evidencing your self-assessment judgements – if you can’t prove it, how do you know it’s true?
  • The apprenticeship levy – why data evidenced quality is more important now than ever before
