Prison’s Membership

The Fellowship of Inspection Nominees is a unique organisation that provides invaluable assistance and guidance to the prison nominee and other key staff integral to help achieve a successful HMIP and Ofsted inspection.

Meeting the support needs of the nominees all year round to grow a culture of high-quality management and delivery.

“After a poor HMIP/Ofsted inspection in 2016 as Governor I needed a fresh look at how our prisoner education provision was being delivered and quality assured. It was apparent that the in-house knowledge and skills level needed something new to adequately meet the expectations of HMIP & Ofsted. I was recommended Kerry Boffey and fin.

Kerry duly agreed to undertake a series of workshops with key senior stakeholders. For both my senior management team and I it was one of those light bulb moments. We had an insight into inspection frameworks, how to prepare thoroughly for inspection, know that there was support and resources available. Most valuable was gaining an appreciation of what the Inspectors were looking for. Not what we thought and/or wanted them to look for.

Kerry and fin undoubtedly put my team and I on a much better trajectory and a significantly improved Ofsted outcome”.

Ian West, Governor HMPYOI Swinfen Hall.
