On 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. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Enterprise_Employability_and_Employer_Engagement_call_for_evidence
Many thanks for your time in completing this survey.
