JCQ Examination Access Arrangements Training (Update/Refresher) Cardiff/Belfast - Morning Only (EAA2)

  • Thursday 17th September 2020 - Cardiff
  • Friday 18th September 2020 - Belfast

3.5 hours (prerecorded video) plus live Q&A session with course tutor - £79

Our update/refresher course in JCQ Examination Access Arrangements is for delegates who already have a working knowledge of the JCQ regulations. This course is approved by the SpLD Assessments Standards Committee (SASC) for 3 Core CPD hours. Because it is an update course, it assumes a level of knowledge and experience. Delegates will be required to confirm that they have a good knowledge of the current JCQ regulations. For details of our introductory course, please click here.

For these morning only Cardiff and Belfast courses, the main presentation will be via a prerecorded video. The advantage of attending these courses (rather than doing them online; the price is the same) is that you will have the opportunity to network with colleagues in the same role, and have the opportunity to ask questions via a live online Q & A session with our course tutor Caroline Read.

Join us for an update/refresher course in JCQ Examination Access Arrangements, covering the current regulations with special reference to the changes for the 2018/19 academic year, including updates to the Access Arrangements Online system.

In addition, and with reference to the changes, the course covers:

  • Rationale for Access Arrangements
  • Roles, responsibilities and systems
  • Types of Access Arrangement
  • Completion of form 8
  • Applying for arrangements online
  • Case studies
  • Recommendations for new and established tests

The course tutor is Caroline Read.
