Office for Standards in Education (OFSTED)

Ofsted (full title: Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills) is the new regulatory authority and inspectorate for children and learners in England.

It brings together the responsibilities of four inspectorates, including the Adult Learning Inspectorate, work from the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) and Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Court Administration, and the current work of Ofsted.

In Wales, the Care and Social Services Inspectorate for Wales (CSSIW) continues to be the regulatory authority for Children's Homes.
