Top speakers to lead masterclasses on the new Ofsted framework


The new Education Inspection Framework (EIF) and what it means for early years practice will be the theme for both masterclasses at this year’s Nursery World Show in London on 7-8 February. Friday’s masterclass will focus on the new Ofsted judgement ‘Quality of education’, while Saturday’s will explore ‘Behaviour and attitudes’, another new judgement within the EIF.
