Corporate Plan 2004-2007: HM Inspectorate of Education in Scotland
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
This is the second Corporate Plan which HM Inspectorate of Education (HMIE) has produced since moving to Agency status in 2001. It covers the period 2004-07 and has been developed in consultation with stakeholders and HMIE's own staff. It will form the basis for judging their performance over that period. HMIE's first three years as an Executive Agency was a period of significant change for HMIE. The HM Senior Chief Inspector is pleased that they succeeded in meeting all of the main targets in their first Corporate Plan while establishing a strong platform for the future. That platform will support an even stronger focus on the impact of inspection on improving Scottish education at the establishment, local authority and national levels in the coming years. This corporate plan relates to the three financial years over the period 2004-07. The plan: (1) sets out their vision, values, objectives, priorities and key activities for the period; (2) outlines important issues and how they will address them; (3) identifies external influences that affect the content and successful delivery of their plan and how they will take account of them; (4) summarises the outcomes of the previous corporate plan for the period 2001-04; and (5) focuses throughout on meeting the needs of stakeholders. The greatest challenge for the organization, however, will be to play their full part in establishing an effective quality improvement strategy for services for children, with an initial focus on child protection. HMIE has been asked by Ministers to take the lead in this work but it can only succeed with the wholehearted involvement of all of those bodies, whether providers or inspectors, engaged in this work.
