A publication from the Adult Learning Inspectorate to enable providers to prepare themselves for inspections from the 1st of April 2005
The new approach aims to lessen the potentially disruptive nature of inspection. Inspections will focus on the rigour of the provider’s self-assessment process and will seek to validate those aspects of the self-assessment report which address the key questions of the Common Inspection Framework.
There are two aspects to the model that are significantly different from the ALI’s current inspection methodology:
- the potential to inspect over time (provisionally a 6-8 week period)
- the pre-inspection analysis (to identify the inspector resource requirement)
A new publication, ‘Changes in inspection, what they mean for you’ has been added to Excalibur’s Inspection Toolkit to enable providers to prepare themselves for inspections from 1 April. The publication can be downloaded from the ALI website at
