Aiming for Outstanding

November 2, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Join us for the third session of our series, where we delve into the world of outstanding provision and the coveted recognition from Ofsted. At FIN, we take great pride in announcing that a number of our members have achieved, and are continuing to achieve an outstanding grade from Ofsted. But what does it truly take to earn this accolade? What is beyond the inspection report? If you had the opportunity to hear directly from the nominees, what advice would they offer?

In this session, we are thrilled to have Sporting Futures Training, active FIN members since 2019, sharing their valuable insights into their journey toward achieving and maintaining Outstanding status. Join Director, Jo Pountney and Curriculum Lead Dan Roe as they discuss their inspection experience, how they navigated the challenges and the triumphs, and the strategies and best practices employed by Sporting Futures Training to sustain their Outstanding status post-inspection.

If you aspire to achieve outstanding recognition and want to optimise your chances of success, these sessions are an unmissable opportunity. Sign up today, completely free of charge for FIN members! For assistance with booking, please contact us at [email protected].
