Whilst Ofsted do not grade individual lessons by words or by numbers the quality of learning across the school is a key factor in triangulation of evidence. On this course you will learn how to use Ofsted criteria, judge the quality of teaching and learning, observe lessons and give constructive feedback to colleagues.
