For many people inspection and accountability are about control that is often based on distrust, looking for errors that need to be corrected. How can regulators build trust in relationships dominated by control?

In this perspective, there is no room for trust in accountability and inspection relationships. Yet, trust is important in these relationships if accountability and inspection are to lead to behavioural change in schools and improve learning outcomes.

So how can we overcome this dilemma? The relationship between trust and control is contingent; while the dominant perspective on trust and control is the one described above - that trust and control are substitutes - there is also another perspective in which trust and control are complementary and strengthen each other.

Self-Determination Theory - a theory often used in learning motivations - can help identify the conditions in which trust and control are complements, and could help to overcome the dilemma so that accountability and inspection stimulate behavioural change in schools for improved learning outcomes.
