LIVE ONLINE: Assessment In Learning Strategies (Afternoon 1pm – 3.30pm)

Course date: 27th Feb 2024

Many schools need help to see what practical assessment looks like in the CfW. After running highly successful 2-day courses for head teachers, this half-day online programme will focus on what effective research suggests teachers should be doing, what this should look like in the classroom and what strategies work! As part of the session, we will examine how teachers can use their planning effectively to plan for and demonstrate progress in a lesson and over time. This short and snappy half day programme is full of quick take-aways that can be implemented by all staff.
