Welcome to CfBT Inspection Services.
CfBT Inspection Services are the inspection arm of CfBT
Education Trust, a not for profit provider of education services
which sets out to advance education for the public benefit.
Our main aim is to improve schools and other institutions
through high quality inspections. We have strong values and a
clear vision to deliver a world class inspection service that will
directly contribute to improving the quality of teaching, learning
and care of all children, young people and adults in settings,
schools and colleges.
CfBT first delivered inspections on behalf of Ofsted in
1993. Since then we have developed our experience and
expertise in the field of school evaluation and improvement to
become one of the UK's first major providers of inspection
services. CfBT Education Trust has been successful in bidding
for the recent tender to manage inspection services on behalf of
the office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and
Skills (Ofsted). For the next three and a half years CfBT
will be responsible for delivering inspection services in schools
(both maintained and independent), the further education &
skills sector, initial training education and childcare delivered
on school sites.
With our inspectors working in partnership with HMI, we plan to
drive forward with new ideas and ways of working to implement the
revised Ofsted Section 5, Section 162a, Children's Centres and
FE&S inspection systems.
