He has worked in a range of good and outstanding schools and was formerly an advisor to Kent LEA and a Senior University Lecturer at Brighton, Cambridge and Canterbury Christ Church. He is a national trainer for ASP and is currently supporting academy chains on preparation for Ofsted and data strategy, as well as working with a range of alternative provisions.

Participating in an Ofsted inspection can be a daunting experience, even for the most experienced of teachers. However, preparing in advance is essential for success. It is highly recommended that governors review the key questions that may be asked, as answering these sufficiently requires in-depth knowledge of school data, progress, procedures and processes.
This course will allow you to examine Key Messages relating to Ofsted expectations, the New Ofsted Framework and Ofsted Policy and Practice.
You will learn how to:
- prepare for an Ofsted Inspection
- demonstrate impact as a governor
- demonstrate that you fully understand the strengths, weaknesses and uniqueness of the school
- fully understand pupil premium and Sports Premium funding and the expectations of a governor
