The Care Inspectorate, Scottish Childminding Association and the Scottish Government have been working together to deliver free, themed online support sessions for childminders. This recorded session focusses on self-evaluation and quality improvement, covering the key principles and benefits of self-evaluation, and demonstrates how self-evaluation links to and supports the Early Learning and Childcare National Standard criteria. During this webinar, you will hear from childminders and an inspector, sharing effective practice across childminding settings.
The Care Inspectorate is a scrutiny body which supports improvement. That means we look at the quality of care in Scotland to ensure it meets high standards. Where we find that improvement is needed, we support services to make positive changes. Our vision is that everyone experiences safe, high-quality care that meets their needs, rights and choices. Our 600 staff work across Scotland, specialising in health and social care, early learning and childcare, social work, children’s services, and community justice.

The Care Inspectorate is required by the Regulatory Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 to follow the Scottish Regulators’ Strategic Code. The Code is issued by the Scottish Ministers and sets out the approaches we should take in dealing with those we regulate. We comply with the requirements of the Code in all that we do, ensuring that we always prioritise the safety, health and wellbeing of vulnerable people over commercial or business interests. The Code itself can be found here. Care services in Scotland must be registered with the Care Inspectorate and a broad range of the individuals who work in those services must be registered with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). You can find more information about the SSSC on their website www.sssc.uk.com.
