Statutory assessment and standardisation training for teachers NEW to Year 2

Statutory assessment and standardisation training for teachers NEW to Year 2

We are offering full day training courses for moderation and assessment at the end of Key Stage 1 for teachers new to Year 2 or returning to teaching Year 2.

This one-day course aims to provide information for teachers who are unfamiliar with, or who have not previously administered, the end of Key Stage 1 statutory assessments.

Training will explore national exemplification materials and prepare delegates to undertake teacher assessment and moderation activity with confidence.

To support teachers who are new to statutory assessment in Year 2, this course will explain essential information about national tests and their administration. Content domain, test formats and timetabling details as well as administrative and regulatory responsibilities, will be clarified.
