Our Communicate-ed Conference Venue Update/Refresher training is for anyone involved in the access arrangements process who wishes to update their knowledge for the 2022/23 JCQ regulations. The full day course is approved by the SpLD Assessments Standards Committee (SASC) for 5 core CPD hours (morning only course is 3 core CPD hours).
