The Adult Learning Inspectorate will become part of the enlarged Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills

‘Education Secretary Ruth Kelly has announced changes to the inspection arrangements for services relating to children, young people and adult learners through enlarging Ofsted as the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills.

The decision follows on from a commitment made by the Chancellor in his Budget Announcement of March 2005 and a consultation held this summer. The creation of the single organisation will be achieved by bringing together into Ofsted the children’s social care remit of the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI), the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS) inspection remit of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Court Administration (HMICA) and, the inspection remit of the Adult Learning Inspectorate (ALI). The enlarged Ofsted will also benefit from a non-executive chair and board to improve internal accountability.’
