ISI Educational Quality Inspections (EQIs) will be piloted in schools during the autumn term 2016 and will be introduced from January 2017. This course is designed to provide additional insight for schools and to explain how the new arrangements will differ from the previous ISI integrated inspections. The course will also explore how the separate reporting of compliance enables inspectors to focus more on vivid reporting of a school’s individual characteristics and quality.

2. The relationship between EQIs and RCIs
