The governments controversial Out-of-School Education Settings consultation closes today.
The consultation, the shortest currently being run by the Department of Education (DofE) will finish officially on Monday January 11.
The proposals under consideration could see Ofsted inspectors being sent into the heart of church life to make sure youth groups, bible studies and holiday camps are promoting the government’s definition of British values. According to campaigners a staggering number of other volountary organisations could also be inspected under the new powers. Any out of school setting that provides intensive education for under 19s for more than between 6-8 hours a week would have to join a nationwide register.
