The 2019-20 SE DCS Peer Challenges will take place in November 2019 and January 2020. This move to late autumn avoids clashing with Ofsted Annual Conversations which are planned to run from January 2020.

We commissioned ADCS to undertake an independent review of the recent round of Triad Peer Challenges, which fed into the detailed planning for 2019-20 and can be found in the box opposite.

We provide access to our growing library of the region’s self-assessments and the Peer Challenge data packs in the Peer Challenge Library. This has been set up as a resource for nominated participants to the 2019-2020 SESLI Programme DCS Peer Challenge cycle. If you are a nominated participant and have yet to receive log in details, please contact Isabelle Gregory, contact details below.
