Next inspection

We can inspect further education and skills providers at any time if we have concerns.

Providers judged outstanding are subject to routine inspection. Most providers will be inspected again by September 2025. They may receive monitoring and other visits.

Inadequate

If they continue to be funded, we normally inspect inadequate providers within 15 months of the publication of their latest full inspection report. They also receive monitoring visits.

New providers

A new provider whose monitoring visit report was published by 31 March 2022 will normally receive their first full inspection within 24 months of publication.
