I'm not sure about Melanie's statement that "Our inspections place the interests and experiences of recruits and trainees at the heart of our work". I think one could argue that the interests of the armed forces is paramount. I understand the argument which goes 'serving the interests of the recruit serves the interests of the forces' but that is not, I think, how it will play out. Nobody will be allowed to fail anything ever again now that OFSTED have their hands on training. Any and all failures will be treated as the fault of the training team or trades instructors for the simple reason that OFSTED will argue that there is no such thing as the bone or unsuitable trainee. According to some of the ARRSE threads technical trades people are already being allowed to pass courses with a mark of 40% and it will get worse. Don't believe me? Wait and see.
