Ofsted schools research: Ofsted carries out research alongside its main inspection programme to look at specific issues, subjects or policies in more detail. Curriculum intent, implementation and impact have been a key focus over the past few years. The new Education Inspection Framework (EIF) has been informed by this work.

K2 Development are working with a number of schools across the West Midlands to support them with accessing and using their apprenticeship levy. Our apprenticeships include Team Leadership at Level 3 (12 months) and Operational Management at level 5 (24 months) and focus on developing leadership potential in our schools. The courses are aimed at potential or existing school leaders and are available for both teaching and support staff. Please see attached document for further details.
If you would like to find out more about this opportunity we will provide a free advice and guidance session at your school with appropriate senior leaders responsible for finance and professional development. Please contact Alan Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make an appointment.
This programme is run by the maths Hubs and consists of a blend of collaborative training and bespoke support, aimed at giving your school an introduction to the ‘Big Ideas’ around teaching for mastery and preparing you for future programmes.
The support within the programme will be spread over the academic year, when you will be part of half-termly group workshops with up to six other schools, as well as receiving half-termly school visits bespoke to your needs. There is no charge for the workshops or the visits from the Mastery Readiness Lead. The programme will involve your maths lead and another teacher and will need to be supported by the headteacher.
There are are currently seven places available for a group of interested Solihull schools (on a first come, first served basis) for support starting this year. If you would like further information or details of how to register for this programme, please contact Donna Wright (email@example.com) before end of September 2019.
