Islington offers expert consultant support and INSET for the specific needs of your setting. We offer two separate support packages for improving quality and accessing central training. We recommend that all early years settings hold five INSET days a year and ensure that all staff members receive high-quality, up-to-date training to meet their individual professional needs. All training, including INSETs, is booked in the Early Years CPD training channel:
Preparing for Ofsted
We recommend you complete an Early Years Self-Evaluation Form in preparation for your next Ofsted inspection and that you complete the form online so that regular changes can be made. We also offer training to support you in preparing for your inspection.
We recommend that all settings have an up to date setting development plan to ensure you offer the highest quality provision for young children. The plan can be used as evidence for OFSTED. Download a template for your setting development plan.
