In 2012 OFSTED will issue a streamlined learning and skills inspection framework for the Further Education and Skills sector. Attend this conference and you’ll have an excellent blueprint on how to become, and remain, outstanding.

As a delegate, you’ll get an insiders briefing on what OFSTED expects AND you’ll discover best practice in action from senior management in FE colleges. Now in its 2nd year, this event offers you a unique chance to quiz experts, inspectors and leaders – and to network and share practical advice.
