Governing By inspection: insights from international studies

An event being held at The Open University

10:00am - 15:15pm

The Open University, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA

Location: Christodoulou Meeting Rooms, Room 15

An event that will examine school inspections across Europe

School inspection is employed in a number of countries as a means by which to govern increasingly complex education systems. Despite a tenuous link between inspection and school improvement, it remains a key driver in the shaping and implementation of education policy, as well as taking a central role in the politics of educational change.

This seminar draws on three national and international research projects in order to examine perspectives on school inspection in Europe. The first project: Governing by Inspection investigates inspection as a governing practice in England, Scotland and Sweden; the second, explores the relationship between school improvement and inspection in  six countries, and the third investigates accountabilities in inspection. We hope you will join us in what promises to be an interesting and engaging day.
