New Ofsted Survey: Enterprise, employability and employer engagement

survey2On 16 September 2015, Sir Michael Wilshaw, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, informed the House of Commons Education Select Committee that Ofsted will be taking a particular look this year at how well schools work with businesses to prepare young people for the world of work. One of the elements of this is currently a number of visits by inspectors to schools to look at work in enterprise, employability and employer engagement. Ofsted is also collecting evidence on this topic in a number of ways. They would like to invite you to take part in a short and confidential survey. Information gathered from these surveys will be used to inform an Ofsted evaluative report, with planned publication early in the summer term.

The key topic they would welcome your views on:  How effectively do secondary schools engage with employers and business to provide high quality enterprise education and employability skills? The survey can be found by following the link below, and shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to complete. Please submit your response by no later than 31 January 2016.

All responses collected are anonymous and Ofsted will only use your information for the purposes of consultation and research to help us to become more effective, shape policies and inform inspection and regulatory practice. They have stated “we will treat your identity in confidence, if you disclose it to us. Further information can be found under Ofsted’s privacy policy:

Many thanks for your time in completing this survey.
