Campus level Ofsted grades could be on the cards for 2020

The discussion to have campus-level Ofsted grades for college groups has been renewed as they could be introduced as soon as next September (2020).

The education watchdog will meet with college leaders to discuss the move and a consultation will be run early in the new year. If support for it is there, Ofsted will not wait for a new inspection framework to launch the change.

Large college groups such as NCG and Luminate Education said they would support the move, stating that it would be more useful for students, parents and employers “to see separate reports for their colleges”.

NSAR Skills & Training offers guidance to help educational institutions and training providers get to grips with the requirements of campus-level Ofsted grades should they be introduced. To see how we can help you contact us at
