Independent Inspectorates: Results of Government Consultation Published
The DfE has published the results of a consultation it launched on draft regulations and advice for the approval of inspectorates, other than Ofsted, for the inspection of independent schools.
The draft regulations set out 13 matters that the Secretary of State must consider when deciding whether to approve or withdraw approval from an inspectorate.
In the light of the comments received during the consultation the advice has been revised, but the regulations remain un-amended and are due to come into force in September 2014.
The results of the consultation can be accessed here.
