Helen Wodehouse Lecture Theatre, School of Education, 35 Berkeley Square, Bristol, BS8 1JA
This event is part of the School of Education's 'Bristol Conversations in Education' seminar series. These seminars are free and open to the public.
Speaker: Daniel Muijs, Ofsted
In this presentation I will look at the role of inspection in improving quality, drawing on the international evidence base. I will explore the need for inspection frameworks to be evidence-informed, and how at Ofsted we aim to ensure that we draw on both existing evidence and conduct our own research to make sure this is the case. I will discuss how we evaluate implementation and impact of our work. I will illustrate the concept of evidence-based inspection using the development and evaluation of our Education Inspection Framework as an example.
