Ofsted Big Conversation: North West

About the Ofsted Big Conversation

The Ofsted Big Conversation brings together representatives of Early Years Childcare Providers and Ofsted across the UK. It is run on a voluntary basis by sector representatives.

The OBC is run on a regional basis, and its aim is twofold – to provide an opportunity for providers to raise areas of concern or queries with a representative from Ofsted, and to give Ofsted an opportunity to give sector representatives updates on policy changes and explain how it operates.

About #NWOBC

The OBC North West Steering Group was established in September 2014 as a key voice for the early years sector and is run by volunteers from the Early Years Sector on a not for profit basis. Our twice yearly open meetings provide really meaningful engagement at grass roots level as well as fantastic professional development. Termly steering group meetings with Ofsted ensure continued focus and a mutual respect that we all want what is best for children (click here to see the latest meeting minutes).
