Further Education Establishments
Do you need help to meet the new JCQ regulations this academic year? Did you know that this academic year (2016-2017) the JCQ Inspectors will again be checking all exam centres and will check that all centres have adhered to the final cut off dates for Access Arrangements.
This academic year (2016-2017) the final submission date will be 21 February 2017 for June 2017 examinations. This means all student’s entitled to Access Arrangements need to have their applications processed by this date and all student files should contain the necessary documentation for the JCQ Inspectors to check.
Student files should contain ‘Normal way of Working’ evidence and this year Support Staff/Teaching Assistants are able to record evidence of normal way of working to be included in the file.
This will take the load off subject teachers but are your staff trained?
Do you support staff/teaching assistants know what constitutes normal way of working?
Do they know what to record?
Do they understand the role they play in Access Arrangements and what questions the JCQ Inspectors are likely to ask?
Greater Manchester Dyslexia Centre can offer training for support staff in gathering and recording evidence to meet JCQ inspector’s standards.
Staff employed at the centre have received training on this year’s JCQ Access Arrangements and are specialised tutors with experience of working in FE/HE centres.
We can offer half day training to meet your staff’s needs at your premises during the day or in a twilight session (4 – 7pm).
Please contact the centre to discuss your needs and the relevant costs.
