Idea Store Learning has asked a group of experts to carry out a week long inspection preparation visit in the week beginning 21st May 2012

During this time the observers will be carrying out a number of observations of teaching and learning, talking to our learners, staff and partners. The purpose of this process is to help us identify how we can move towards being an excellent provider.

The teaching observations will start on Monday 21st and run through to the end of Thursday 24th of May. Please be ready to welcome one or two observers to your classroom as some will do co observations with your manager.

Please ensure you have the following available.

  • A complete and up to date register.
  • A Scheme of Work.
  • A lesson plan.
  • ILPs for each of the learners
  • Spare copies of handouts etc.
  • A seat for your visitor.

Please ensure that you are prepared to start punctually, observers may arrive at the beginning, or half way thorough your sessions.The observer will give you full and supportive feedback to you.

Should you have any queries or worries please contact your manager.

Many thanks in advance for your cooperation with this process. It will really help us to get ready for an inspection from Ofsted in the future and should give you some valuable external feedback on your teaching.
