Schools have come under increasing scrutiny since the Covid pandemic and classroom closures - lots of people have opinions about how they run. Now Wales’ education watchdog is asking members of the public to join its inspection teams.
Estyn is looking for lay members, who don’t work in schools or council education departments, to help its work ensuring standards. “Being a Lay Inspector is a brilliant opportunity to help your community and make a difference to the lives of young people,” Estyn said.
“We’re looking for members of the public who do not work in a school setting, but have an interest in education. Seeing our work through the eyes of a lay inspector brings transparency to what we do.”
