The BESA EdTech SIG are delighted to host Sean Harford, HMI and Ofsted's National Director for Education to lead the new seminar on the education inspection framework.

This event is open to all BESA members, Launchpad subscribers and EDUCATE cohorts. 

Sean will be sharing Ofsted's new inspection framework. He will look to discuss what the frameworks's aims are, how and when it will be implemented and what the likely implications are for suppliers, as well as, in his view what industry should be aware of. This will hopefully start a dialogue of closer collaboration between suppliers and regulators.
