Accountability in education: governance, Ofsted and league tables
England (North West), England (London)
This seminar will examine the reform of school and college governance, and of accountability in the education system. It is scheduled to follow the completion of the Education Select Committee's review into the role and remit of Ofsted, and will bring key policymakers together with stakeholders including school governors, local authorities, parents' groups and headteachers. At this early stage sessions are unconfirmed, but they are expected to look at moves towards increased professionalism in governance, potential reform for Ofsted and changes to the way schools and colleges are held accountable by both Ofsted and the public, including league tables and the role of pupil assessment.
Key speakers already confirmed include:
Richard Brooks, Director of Strategy, Ofsted
Emma Knights, Chief Executive, National Governors' Association
Graham Stuart MP, Chair, Education Select Committee
