Ofsted and the Joint Targeted Area Inspection

Commenting on the joint targeted area inspection, Stuart Gallimore, Chair of the ADCS Standards, Performance and Inspection Policy Committee, said:

“The joint targeted area inspection (JTAI) represents two additional inspections for local authorities involving the multi-agency JTAI and the single agency JTAI focussed only on the local authority. This, along with the continued use of the single inspection framework and beginning of a new inspection of SEND provision, would be unsustainable for inspectors and inspected, unaffordable to government and represent a significant increase in the inspection burden placed upon local authorities.”
