This report is published in response to a request for advice from the Welsh Government in the Minister’s annual remit letter to Estyn for 2012-2013. The report examines the use of the five statutory days allocated for in-service training (INSET – an acronym for IN-SErvice Training) in primary, secondary and special schools. The report includes case studies of best practice.
The report is based on evidence from visits to 15 schools, and scrutiny of data and inspection outcomes. Seventy-six schools and nine local authorities returned a questionnaire to Estyn. The report is intended for the Welsh Government, headteachers and staff in schools and local authorities. It may also be of interest to teacher trainers and to church diocesan education authorities.
