I hope you find the article a useful read, I have aimed to give you a flavour of the new framework and the shift in focus, hoping it saves you some time until you can find a moment to read the full Handbook in place for September 2019. This is the first in a series of 7 short articles which provide an overview of the different aspects of the FE Inspection Handbook and the Education and Inspection Framework (EIF).
The new Further Education and Skills Inspection Handbook is based on the Education Inspection Framework (EIF). It has quickly become known as the EIF as we all love an acronym in FE. We have changed from the CIF to the EIF. One of the hardest things I found when I joined FE was the extensive use of acronyms, the sector has created its own unique language.
