    Is your promotion of British values outstanding?

    Many providers have good practice in promoting British values. But do you have what it takes to be outstanding? How does your practice compare with the ‘best of the best’? What common issues do Inspectors continue to identify?

    It’s extremely likely that the promotion of British values will continue to feature highly in the new 2019 inspection framework.

    However, although colleges and independent training providers have been required to actively promote British values for some time now, Ofsted still pick up issues. For example, in one inspection last year, inspectors said:

    The large majority of students and apprentices do not have a good enough understanding of British values. They do not know how these link to work and life in the community’

    In another, inspectors said:

    'Leaders and staff do not make sure that learners and apprentices know how to protect themselves and others from the risks of radicalisation and extremism. Staff do not make effective use of current news or the training they have received to broaden and enhance learners’ and apprentices’ understanding of these topics.’

    (although these reports are in the public domain, I do not name organisations with poor practice. This is because they will hopefully improve, and I would not want to put material online when it may refer to a difficult inspection in the past)

    Other issues picked up by inspectors include:

    • Inconsistent practice across study programmes, adult programmes and workplace learning
    • A lack of staff confidence to facilitate discussions of sensitive or controversial issues, making use of what is going on in the world
    • A lack of understanding on how to effectively evaluate tutorial practice for impact
    • A lack of consistent practice across different curriculum areas

    Interested in finding out how these issues have been addressed and what the best of the best are doing? Take a look below at three of my most popular training courses, which are updated with the very latest findings from Ofsted
