This guidance sets out the way the inspectorate will inspect adult community learning partnerships for the six-year inspection cycle from 2010. It was reviewed during 2012-2013 in preparation for the second half of the inspection cycle.
The inspectorate conducts a core inspection for all providers in each sector of education and training. This guidance explains how we will carry out core inspections. Where the inspection identifies a concern in relation to standards, quality of education and training or leadership and management, then the inspectorate will conduct follow-up activity with the provider. This guidance contains information about follow-up activity in Annex 7.
