ETI has produced the following guidance on monitoring visits for a range of educational phases.


ETI intends also to conduct a range of short formal monitoring visits to a number of schools and organisations across all education and training phases, most of whom are currently in the follow-up inspection process. The visits will focus on areas for improvement from the last inspection, improvements effected prior to the pandemic, current priorities and any impact of COVID-19 on the curriculum, including practical work, learning experiences, and the quality of learning and teaching. The visits are intended to support organisations to reflect on the strengths of their current provision with a view to being well prepared for follow-up or other inspection activity when that can take place.
