ALI Announce Masters in Inspection and Evaluation

The world’s first Masters qualification in Inspection and Evaluation has been developed by the Adult Learning Inspectorate (ALI) and the University of Warwick.

It will now be possible for inspectors of all professions, to gain a qualification in quality assessment and improvement. David Sherlock, Chief Inspector of Adult Learning, says: “Inspectors have to work in challenging environments and be ready to adapt to changes in inspection methods. There has never been any sort of qualification which meets their specific needs. This innovative course will be a useful tool in refining inspector skills.”

The Programme

The unique MA programme has been designed to fit around the pressures of working life, enabling those who wish to undertake the course, giving them the opportunity to learn from home. The study patterns have also been devised so that it is feasible for ALI and university staff to deliver tutoring and mentoring.

Inspector Nigel Bragg says: “It’s a great opportunity to reflect on the “how” and “why” of the job. I”m particularly looking forward to studying a wide range of inspection-related topics and applying the newly acquired knowledge, in the workplace.”

The first group of inspectors have already completed their induction part of the three year course and a second group are set to enroll.
