Understanding the ISI Regulatory Compliance Inspection (RCI) Framework for Governors


An interactive and engaging one-day seminar providing an overview of the key features of ISI regulatory compliance inspection from the perspective of governance. We look at the background and scope of the RCI framework, including implications for Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and boarding settings, and the activities that take place prior to a scheduled inspection. We explore the role of governors in the inspection process, the methods used for gathering and recording evidence during the inspection visit and the latest formats used for inspection feedback and reporting. You will have the opportunity to clarify specific areas of the framework with the course leader, a highly experienced ISI Reporting Inspector, and benefit from top tips for a successful inspection outcome.
