Ofsted will directly manage early years inspections and regulatory work from April 2017. Currently, early years inspections are carried out by Tribal and Prospects on behalf of Ofsted. Bringing early years inspection under direct management means that Ofsted will have full control over the selection, training and management of inspectors, and complete oversight of the quality of inspection. This will bring early years inspections in line with schools and further education and skills, with Ofsted directly managing all inspections.
