OFSTED (Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills) carries out periodic assessments of training providers. The OFSTED inspection reviews programme delivery and the inspection includes observations of teaching, learning and assessment.

The benefits of independent observation

The benefits of independent observation

The Independent observation of teaching, learning and assessment is the key to delivering strong apprenticeship training, which impacts on individual and organisational apprentice performance.

Independent observation of practice, from external organisations (such as PAL), strengthens company reputation and assists with preparing for external inspections, such as those from OFSTED and awarding organisations

What will PAL offer?

Consultancy and Training

PAL will provide one of their experienced practitioners to observe teaching, learning and assessment delivery

PAL will provide detailed observation feedback reports with concise constructive criticism. This focuses on good practices identified, while indicating areas for development. PAL will recommend options for further professional development.

Workplace learning

PAL can also assist organisations in their compilation of quality improvement plans and self-assessment reports, building on our experience of preparing for such inspections and using our network of consultants, which includes former HMIs and OFSTED nominees

Observation of practice means:

  • Understanding your individual trainer’s strengths and weaknesses regarding teaching, learning and assessment.
  • Being able to support trainers to improve, thus maintaining a quality provision. This should lead to higher learner satisfaction and achievement rates, and maintain a strong reputation for being a quality Apprenticeship Provider.
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of your training and helping to continuously develop and improve your apprenticeship offer.
