What is an Ofsted deep dive?

A deep dive is a phrase given to the process that inspectors use to gain a deeper understanding of a provider’s curriculum and relationships with partners. In an Ofsted inspection focused on apprenticeships, a deep dive would involve a thorough examination of the quality of the apprenticeship provision offered by the education or training provider. Through closer inspection of several areas, the inspectorate says they can better judge the overall quality of the education you deliver.
