The profile of Ofsted inspection outcomes suggests that there is a need for system-wide improvement in children’s services. Understanding how best to enable and support that improvement has been the focus of research commissioned by the Local Government Association (LGA), which sought to answer two central questions.

  • What are the key enablers of (and barriers to) improvement in local children’s services?
  • How can the system as a whole facilitate and support improvement in local children’s services?

Makes for an interesting read.
