Event Description
With two terms completed, teachers will now have a really good understanding of what their pupils know and can do. The remaining term is crucial to ensure they are ready to meet the demands of the next year group.

This course will support delegates in how best to prioritise and prepare their learners in the final term. Aimed at helping NQTs and early-career teachers to identify and unpick gaps in pupils’ learning, so that they can be closed easily, this course will help ensure as many pupils as possible reach the age-related expectations (or show they are working at greater depth), as a result of effective Assessment for Learning.

Within the Teachers Standards, this will help NQTs thoroughly demonstrate their ‘accurate and productive use of assessment’. Packed full of ideas and activities, as well as an opportunity to map out a plan of attack, this course will support teaching sequences for the final term. This course is most suitable to NQTs and those teachers early in their career.

This course would also suit overseas trained teachers, those returning to teaching or moving key stage.
