This tool aims to support providers to be prepared to submit their application to register with Ofsted and meet the requirements of the four Quality Standards.
The tool pulls together in one place the key pieces of evidence that a provider will wish to assure itself on and aims to give a high-level overview of its progress.
The tool presents this information in an easily accessible “at a glance” RAG review rating system to update the Provider on progress in implementation. It also includes a facility for a follow up audit which enables the Provider to demonstrate trends in terms of implementation and flag up any areas which are not moving towards full compliance.
Data and evidence
As part of the Sector Awareness and Provider Preparedness Programme NCB are collecting anonymised data on the preparedness of providers to inform national understanding of the progress towards implementation of the Supported Accommodation regulations and quality standards. By downloading this form you are agreeing to share the anonymised data in the preparedness summary after audit 1 and again after audit 2. The link and instructions on how to do this are on the Preparedness Summary tab.
This resource has been prepared and produced by the National Children’s Bureau, the provider of the Department for Education funded Sector Awareness and Provider Preparedness programme, based on the information published directly by Department of Education and Ofsted. It is highly recommended that you refer to The Department of Education and Ofsted’s most up-to-date guidance to support the application and registration process.
