Some useful clarifications from the new Ofsted handbook for FE, June 15th 2015

“Ofsted has no preferred teaching style. Inspectors judge the quality of teaching by its impact on learning. Providers are not expected to use the Ofsted evaluation schedule to evaluate teaching or individual lessons, or to undertake a specified amount of lesson observations. Teaching staff should plan their lessons as usual. Ofsted does not specify how lesson plans should be set out or the amount of detail they should contain. Inspectors will not grade observations of learning sessions or assessments.”
