Last week a storm brewed at my institution. A selection of curriculum areas were given a phone call on a Thursday, regarding an inspection of teaching and learning on the following Monday – a MOCKSTED!
This was no internal inspection from our quality unit. No, this was an inspection by a group of (very well) paid Ofsted Inspectors who I believe were reaping the benefits of the ‘Ofsted fear factor’.
What do I mean by this?
