They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
OFSTED carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England, and publish the results on their website. The aim of all this work is to promote improvement and value for money in the services they inspect and regulate, so that children and young people, parents and carers, adult learners and employers benefit.
