Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. Ofsted inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
During an inspection, inspectors collect first-hand evidence based on the practice they observe and what they learn from the people using the service. They use this evidence and other information available to make their professional judgements which is then published in their inspection reports.
In the latest Ofsted inspection of Community Learning and Skills an overall Ofsted rating of Grade 2 (Good) was achieved.CLS Ofsted Profile
