Do NGA offer Ofsted preparation training?

Yes, we have a variety of options for single schools and multi academy trusts.

Preparing for Ofsted – what governors and trustees need to know

All options provide participants with clarity as to what is expected of them and their board, how best to prepare for an Ofsted visit and how to respond to Ofsted lines of enquiry.

The options include a standard session covering the essentials to a highly bespoke conversation based option which covers the basics and then allows key governing board members to explore how best to prepare for Ofsted and likely lines of enquiry. This option, through facilitation and feedback, provides the opportunity for those likely to attend meetings to focus on key areas for the trust for which they may have a leading role and to practice how to prepare for and respond confidently and effectively to potentially challenging questions.
