Thematic Inspections

Specialised or Thematic Inspections in schools are used when we want to examine the teaching of a specific subject or issue in the educational system. These inspections usually have a strong research focus. For example, we have used specialised inspections to examine issues in DEIS schools; we have also used them when we researched the teaching of English as an Additional Language (EAL). Normally, we provide oral feedback and a written report to the school or centre and often a national report summarising the general trends that we have identified.
