  63. 63. “There is no progress within lessons. There is only learning.” “The Ofsted framework talks about ‘gains in their knowledge, skills and understanding’ in lessons. They are things that inspectors will be looking to see from the students. Where progress is mentioned, it is not something that inspectors will be looking to see from the students, because it is about the effectiveness of monitoring that they will be looking to see from the teachers.” Keven Bartle @KevBartle
