For experienced invigilators who already have a good knowledge of the regulations and procedures relating to supporting access arrangements, we offer a ‘Training for Readers, Scribes, Invigilators and other Adult Helpers: Update for 2019/20’ course. This course simply covers the changes for the current regulations. In order to confirm that attendees are familiar with the regulations and procedures, every delegate is required to pass an online assessment.
The update course simply covers the changes for the current JCQ regulations with regards to invigilation and supporting access arrangements in exams. it is assumed that delegates already have a good knowledge of the regulations and procedures relating to supporting access arrangements.
The course tutor is Caroline Read.

The update course can be accessed online by individual invigilators who already have a good knowledge of the regulations and procedures relating to supporting access arrangements. The person booking will select a start date, and then each of the three delegates will have 10 days to access the training and complete the online assessment. Extra staff members can be added for £10 extra each. The assessment can only be accessed once by each delegate.
For over a decade we have been running courses across the country, aiming to provide high quality, value for money training for education professionals working in the area of special needs. Many of our delegates are telling us that it is increasingly difficult for busy professionals to take the opportunity to attend courses ‘off-site’. In response to this, we now offer a number of online training courses, focusing on Examination Access Arrangements, Assessment, and Supporting SEN Students.
With the internet now so accessible, the advantages of online courses are clear:
Courses can be viewed at any time, and in any venue where there is a good internet reception.
You will have 10 days (or for some courses 20 days) from the start date you choose to login and view the course. You can run the course as many times as you want to within this 10/20 day period.
N.B. Delegates will need a good broadband connection to access our online courses.
For the update course the £30 fee allows up to 3 delegates to access the training and complete the online assessment. Extra staff members can be added for £10 more each.
