The course covers the key skills required to be a successful inspector of your own department or school. These include preparation for the inspection, the processes involved seeking evidence (including lesson observations and interviews with colleagues & students) and writing reports that will help your department, year group, key stage and/or school develop further.
Your facilitator, Colin Dyson, is one of the most experienced trainers and inspectors working in the Middle East today. He has worked as subject leader in ICT, science and PE, and has wide experience of excellent schools, as well as turning round less successful schools.
Prior to working for Penta, Colin was a Headteacher (three times!) in the UK and a Local Authority Consultant. He has had two international headships, and then started in school inspection, training and consultancy. OFSTEDtrained, he is the most experienced Lead Inspector working with the BSO framework, and of BSME accreditation visits.
He has trained and/or inspected in most countries in MENA region and beyond – Egypt, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and many more. He runs courses on the Creative Curriculum, on School Self-Evaluation, and on being an Internal School Inspector
The course is an introduction to those skills needed for inspecting schools in any context – but it is focussed on YOUR school. It provides a foundation that would be invaluable for those potentially seeking accreditation or preparing for inspection, but its main purpose is to help you improve the quality of education being provided in your school.
It is the first of two stages of the training and is assessed. As such, there will be an examination process at the end of the course. Those passing the course will receive a certificate of completion from Penta International and the BSME. Holders of that certificate will be able to proceed to the second stage of training, which will go into more detail in terms of the skills required. Both stages of the course are hard work during the day: then there is ‘homework’, usually tasks which will be discussed with other members.
