Two new Ofsted reports, Learning and skills for offenders serving short custodial sentences and Learning and skills for the longer serving offender, evaluate learning programmes for prisoners serving sentences of less than a year and greater than four years.
We have published the opening remarks by Christine Gilbert, Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Education, Children's Services and Skills to the Children, Schools and Families Select Committee.
Ofsted has presented the findings from the joint investigation looking at safeguarding children in the London Borough of Haringey to the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families.
The report, Virtual learning environments: an evaluation of their development in a sample of educational settings, shows that the use of virtual learning environments across schools and colleges has been slow to take off.
Ofsted has published the outcomes of the 2008 Annual Performance Assessments (APAs) conducted across 147 local authorities in England.
This statistical software can be used to measure students' progress on graded level 3 qualifications. This consultation seeks views on its use in school sixth form and college performance reports.
We inspect and regulate to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages.
The new Ofsted brings together the wide experience of four inspectorates to make a greater difference for every child, and for all young people and adult learners, in England. Their educational, economic and social well-being will promote our success as a country.
