In the works: guidance for consultants and new hires working with LAs following Ofsted inspections
Data to Insight and Ofsted are working together to develop guidance on how local authorities can best benefit from the arrival of consultants and new hires in the wake of an Ofsted inspection of their Children's Services department.
The time following an Ofsted inspection can be a turbulent one, with incoming staff struggling to make sense of their new context, and data teams struggling to work in new ways. We think Data to Insight supports tools which could help ease the this, and that with Ofsted's help we can reduce burden in this area by drafting guidance explaining common challenges and useful approaches.
