We will continue to have a mix of Early Years Experts and Ofsted Representatives and include the interactive Sli Do both before, during and after the event. We hope to be able to bring you the latest news and events from within the industry.

We’re also inviting some selected partners as before, usually in exchange for their presentations!

The OBC is organised and run by volunteers from across the West Midlands Region and is a completely non-profit making event. The ticket price just covers the cost of running the event. Ofsted come along by invitation and do not receive any fees or make a charge for their attendance.
