Joint Targeted Area Inspections (JTAI) are thematic inspections that look at how well local agencies work together in an area to protect children. It is a joint inspection undertaken by Ofsted, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS), and Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Probation (HMI Probation).

Upcoming JTAI Themes:

“Having consulted with our fellow inspectorates and stakeholders from across the sector, we have jointly agreed the next 3 deep dive themes.”

These will be:

  • children living with mental health issues
  • prevention and early intervention
  • older children in need of help and protection, and contextual safeguarding, including exploitation.
