The Estyn Remit
On this page you will find the Education Minister’s annual letters setting out the Estyn remit and our responses to Estyn’s Remit Reports.
Estyn is an independent inspection service headed by the Chief Inspector, Meilyr Rowlands. It is responsible for inspecting quality and standards across all sectors of education and training in Wales.
Further information is available on the Estyn website.
Each year the Education Minister writes a Remit Letter to the Chief Inspector, to commission advice on a range of subject areas relating to the provision of education and training. Estyn produces reports in response to items in this annual Remit Letter.
The information provided by Estyn is used to help inform policy development and to monitor progress against existing policies. These reports are published on Estyn’s website.
The Education Minister considers these reports and provides a response to the recommendations.
