Estyn inspects quality and standards in education and training providers in Wales using the Common Inspection Framework. Estyn is currently reviewing the inspection arrangements for non-maintained settings and initial teacher education and training.
Estyn will inspect all providers at least once during the seven-year period which began 1 September 2016. The date of the next inspection is not linked to the date of the previous inspection. Providers receive three weeks’ written notice of inspection, with the exception of local government education services which receive 10 weeks’ notice and initial teacher education which receive 8 weeks’ notice.
Our inspection schedule lists all forthcoming inspections.
