Inspections

Inspector recruitment

Our team of over 900 inspectors is fully trained to deliver informed and reliable judgements on the schools we inspect.

Every year we deliver, on average, over 300 hours of qualification, induction and annual training.

We have two types of inspectors:

Reporting inspectors - who lead inspections.

Team inspectors - who work with others as part of an inspection team.

We also have a Duty Team, which is a group of highly experienced inspectors who provide on-inspection support. 

ISI inspectors must successfully complete initial training, when they are assessed on their suitability for the role.
We then operate a continuous professional development programme and update inspectors on regulatory and operational changes.

Our Training Department runs a variable number of recruitment rounds, depending on inspection demand.
If you are interested in applying for any of our recruitment and assessment courses, please register your interest by signing up to our mailing list

Please note, at present (autumn 2022) our Team Inspector recruitment is on hold.  We will be in touch with all those who have expressed interest as soon as we re-open recruitment.
