Inspectors Need E-Education To Keep Up To Speed

When you want to become a supply teacher in any school, you need to have the requisite training – i.e. be a currently trained and registered teacher with up to date qualifications and the all important teacher status.  At least this was the case at all times until a year or so ago when free schools came to being and it was possible to become a teacher via a different route.   It has always been said that ofsted inspectors are failed teachers, the joke going “those that can, teach.  Those that can’t, become ofsted inspectors”.  This does seem to be borne out by the berks that I have certainly seen in my many years as a voluntary school governor, faced with several ofsteds in my time.  These days though, there is no excuse for anyone not to know exactly what is needed in the role of ofsted and it’s inspectorate team.
