Quotenow they don't!
QuoteWSE = Whole School Evaluation report? We have ETI (Education and Training Inspectorate) reports in the North. They come in a number of guises. They can last from three to five days. The Inspectorate here are pretty mild compared to Ofsted in England. However with the Every School A Good School paper, if its passed the Inspectors will get more teeth. Already they are grading schools on a 1 to 6 scale. Anything below 4 and serious pressure results.Schools in the North currently have 73 different initiatives to implement. They have become the spine of society as some other groups and individuals decline to exercise responsibility.

Quote from: TacadoirArdMhacha on June 25, 2008, 01:02:36 PMI'd have a brave few family members in teaching and the thing I've never understood is why they have so much notice for inspections. Surely if the inspection is to have any real meaning, it should be on a random basis, i.e. they turn up unannounced and if things aren't up to scratch, tough. Is there still such notice for inspections?
