Our thematic reports distil our nationwide perspective on education and training into helpful, informative policy advice and are used to monitor progress. We also contribute to a number of education working groups.
Each year the Education Minister asks the Chief Inspector for advice on a range of themes in relation to education and training to help inform policy development and to monitor progress.
The documents below provide an annual summary of findings from our national thematic reports.
