Last year, like many organisations, we hosted some live, paid events to run through that year’s updates to the JCQ regulations. Following a great deal of thought and debate, this year we have decided to do something quite different. We are going to be offering a free-to-access update, available to all qualified access arrangements professionals.
This will take the form of a detailed webinar, hosted by our experts, giving you full details on the changes implemented this year and discussing potential challenges, interpretations and scenarios.
Why have we made this change?
There are two main reasons behind this change, one technical and the other a matter of principle. The technical reason is that we understand that the upcoming changes are not particularly wide-ranging or challenging – certainly not sufficient to merit a full day of training. The fundamental reason, though, was one of principle. As an organisation committed to improving outcomes for all – and giving education professionals the confidence they need – we feel a professional duty to ensure that all access arrangements assessors have the information they require, regardless of their school’s financial circumstances.
How can you register?
A registration form for the webinar will be circulated in the coming weeks. If you want us to add your name to the list, however, simply email us and we can process your free registration from here.
When will you be able to access the Real Training Access Arrangements Update?
We’ll be working over the summer, to ensure that you can access this full, free update by the start of the autumn term – giving you the confidence you need ahead of the first wave of Form 8 submissions in the winter.
Can you pass this on to your colleagues?
The short answer to this is yes! Whilst this update is being created with our previous graduates foremost in mind, we want to support all assessors. So, if you have colleagues who might benefit, please forward this email to them so they can also benefit.
