ECF and NPQ inspection framework update
What it means for ECTs, NPQ participants and schools involved in the programmes
Ofsted are offering a webinar for programme participants and schools as they move closer to the start of the ECF and NPQ inspections. The webinar will be held on 4 May 2022 from 11:00-12:00.
Earlier this year, Ofsted published its new framework and handbook for inspecting lead providers of the early career framework (ECF) and national professional qualifications (NPQs). During these inspections, Ofsted will engage with Early Career Teachers (ECTs), NPQ participants, mentors and other school representatives to inform the inspection of lead providers. If you would like to hear more about what these inspections mean for you, register for this webinar. This will help you to understand our approach to inspection ahead of the start of lead provider monitoring visits in summer 2022. There will also be an opportunity to answer any questions you may have.
