Memorandum of Understanding between us and the Office for the Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted)

How we will work with the Office for the Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills to avoid duplication or confusion and protect the interests and rights of children and adults who use services that are regulated and/or inspected by either or both inspectorates(s).

This paper outlines how the inspectorates will work together to:

  • avoid duplication or confusion
  • protect the interests and rights of children and adults who use services that are regulated and/or inspected by either or both inspectorate(s).
  • help providers of those services to be clear about their accountability.
  • help our staff know when and how to coordinate our work.

This paper also sets out:

  • the respective responsibilities of Ofsted and CIW for securing improvement and effective regulation and enforcement in the social care sector.
  • the principles that will be applied when regulated services are provided by the same provider in both jurisdictions.
