Ofsted pilot abolishes individual lesson grades

Ofsted pilot abolishes individual lesson grades

Teachers and lecturers will not be graded individually for the quality of their teaching under a new pilot from Ofsted. After the inspectorate last week announced a similar trial for schools in the Midlands, national director for further education and skills Lorna Fitzjohn confirmed on Monday that comparable work would be carried out in the FE sector. Rather than giving every teacher a grade on each individual lesson observation form, inspectors will instead give detailed feedback about “what is going well and what is going less well”. Ofsted said it hoped the move would reduce “ineffective and unnecessary lesson observation”. The new approach could eventually be rolled out across the country.
