Tribal Education Ltd is a Department-approved inspectorate of British schools overseas. Schools approved under this process will be able to offer validated evidence that they provide a British education comparable to an independent school in the UK. Schools will receive a report that can be made available to parents, students and prospective clients.
Tribal has been Ofsted’s largest inspections contractor since 2004. It inspects a large number of educational providers each year, including publicly funded schools, independent schools, Early Years settings, universities and colleges providing further education courses and teacher training, and work-based learning.
