Training aim

This energising, collaborative and above all practical day focuses on great ideas developed by practitioners across the sector: how they work, why they work, and what you need to do to adapt them to your own context. At the end of the day you'll leave challenged, inspired and with a clear action plan so you can hit the ground running on your return. And it's not just our ideas - everyone will have the opportunity to contribute if they wish and share what's worked for them.

  • Stretch and challenge learners with effective approaches to assessment and differentiation
  • Enable your learners to achieve excellent results, supporting them with the most difficult aspects of the qualification
  • Share ideas and approaches with colleagues across the sector
