Start date

Learning Method
Remote Delivered CPD


Research evidence consistently shows that formative practices (Assessment for Learning (AfL)) are at the heart of classrooms where deep and meaningful understanding is nurtured, and greater learning gains are made. This course will look at a wide range of hands-on approaches that can be taken away and used immediately to help teachers build a classroom culture which links to the key areas identified from research.

Session timings will be confirmed nearer the time. Please contact Gill Humes if you have any questions.

Dates for day 3 for this course are flexible and will be agreed with the course leader after day 1
