Are you ready for inspection? By Vanessa Dooley

Are you ready for inspection? – the third edition by Vanessa Dooley has gone to the No 1 bestseller on Amazon, in 3 categories (Preschool & Nursery Education Books, School Inspections, and in Early Childhood Education categories).

The book is the third edition of ‘Are you ready for inspection?’ and is a practical guide to support and show those working in early years through the early years inspection and how to create and show impact! It provides early years practitioners with the tools to be able to motivate them and their teams to evaluate and improve their practice. It also enables practitioners to demonstrate impact during their Ofsted inspection and deliver outstanding practice consistently.

Vanessa and the team at Jigsaw support early practitioners throughout the UK.  Vanessa first took pen to paper when she published the first edition of ‘Are you ready for Inspection?’, in September 2018 (which was also a best seller). However, the early year’s sector is always changing, and since the second edition was published in Aug 2019 (Again a best seller) the world has changed phenomenally. The third edition highlights the shift change in Ofsted inspections post-pandemic and the stress and anxiety this has caused many owners and practitioners, alongside this Vanessa share golden nuggets of information to help practitioners evaluate, prepare, and shine on the day of inspection.

Vanessa Dooley stated:

‘During the past 21 months, Early Years have maintained the consistency with what children needed. Life has changed dramatically and having first-hand knowledge working with early years settings and as a former Ofsted inspector, I knew I could help relieve some of the stress and anxiety that comes with an inspection.
The book was rewritten and includes many free downloads to help support settings for the world in which we now find ourselves. With two new chapters and 12,000 words, I am delighted and amazed with the number of messages I have received since its launch on Tuesday. Thank you to everyone who purchased and supported it, in just 4 hours it reached No 1.’
