Who we are
Estyn is the Education and Training Inspectorate for Wales. Our mission is to achieve excellence for all learners in Wales. We do this by providing independent, high-quality inspection and advice services. We inspect and report on the quality and standards in education and training provided in Wales, including:
- how far education and training meet the needs of learners and contribute to their development and wellbeing
- standards achieved
- the quality of leadership and management
Estyn is independent from, but funded by, the Welsh Government.
We currently employ approximately 118 staff, comprising Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI) and staff in Corporate Services.
What we do
We have a wide range of statutory inspection and reporting responsibilities, including inspection of all publicly-funded education and training across Wales.
We inspect in partnership with the education provider, with an overall focus on learners’ needs. Self-evaluation, using Estyn guidance, is a key part of providers’ quality assurance process, which identifies their strengths and areas for development. Using this information, the inspection teams report on the standards achieved by learners, the quality of the education or training provided and the quality of leadership and management.
We contribute to the development of education and training policy in Wales through our inspection work and remit reports, providing high-quality advice on themes agreed in the annual remit task from the Welsh Government. We also work with other major stakeholders through participation in policy working groups and in regular forums.
