UPDATE: APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FRIDAY 28 AUGUST
The Education Hub encourages schools to participate in the Assessment Lead Programme, delivered by the UK’s Evidence-Based Education (EBE). Starting at the beginning of Term 4, this year-long course supports leaders to make their school’s approach to assessment more efficient, enabling teachers to make more reliable judgements about what students know, can do, and their next steps.
The programme provides a framework for improving a school’s in-house assessment approach, both formative and summative. It includes evidence-based training, practical tools and resources, guidance for implementation, and a collaborative model of development and expert support.
In line with the best available evidence in teacher PLD, the programme is structured over a year, with participants learning and developing their practice in manageable units and at their own pace.
The course is designed for two or more participants from each school – one should be a senior leader in charge of assessment and/or professional learning, and the other could be a senior or middle leader.
