Just when you think OFSTED have got their act together, the flip cameras are back.April 9, 2013
I was actually quite impressed to hear that OFSTED have taken action about inspectors who don’t even have QTS status.

But, just in case it looked like OFSTED was getting back on track, all those good practice videos have turned up again on youtube.
