Youth Inspection Programmes

Our current inspection programme, Inspection of Youth Offending Work, consists of two main performance inspection elements – the Full Joint Inspection (FJI), predominantly but not exclusively focusing on those YOTs performing less well, and Short Quality Screening (SQS). Each YOT can expect either at least one FJI or SQS, or to be included in a thematic inspection, in a five year period.

We are starting to develop our new methodology under the Quality & Impact Inspection programme.
