The course was excellent, the quality of resources and delivery was outstanding and relevant to secondary (something I was worried may not be the case). The balance also of conversation between participants was excellent. John was very efficient also in sending all relevant drop box resources. Thank you.

Peter Taylor Audenshaw School Inspection training and OFSTED call preparation 06/11/2022

Excellent course, has provoked lots of thought and ideas about how we can effectively show progression made throughout COVID, how to support middle leaders and senior leaders through the inspection and most importantly how to be prepared. Would fully recommend this course.

Marie Sweetlove Bradfields Academy OFSTED updates 2021 07/05/2021

The course was extremely thorough, and very informative about the new requirements for Ofsted, and also for the expectations post-Covid. The information about the deep-dives was extremely useful also. I feel so much more prepared and confident about our next inspection.

Paula Winter Grafton Primary School OFSTED inspection and call preparation 15/12/2021

Really useful. As a new principal of a school that has not been inspected since 2007(!), I am trying to be sure that I am fully prepared for the call that must be imminent.

David Woods Hockerill Anglo European College OFSTED updates 2021 07/05/2021
