A new post, “Ofsted’s 2023 priorities for schools and further education and skills” has just been published on the Ofsted: schools and further education & skills (FES) blog.
“In the FE and skills sector, we found great variety in learners and providers’ experiences. We found good examples of ambitious curriculums, skilled teachers, and motivated learners. But we also saw:
- restricted or uncoordinated off-the job training
- not enough thought given to learners’ future employment
- poor overall outcomes for colleges teaching learners with severe or multiple disabilities.
Our report also included our reviews of T-levels and skills bootcamps. We found that many providers are delivering high-quality training and education, but some are finding it difficult to properly implement these new programmes. We will therefore be inspecting skills bootcamps from April and will be revisiting T-level providers in 2023″.
