Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing – Manchester
We hope your 2019 is off to a good start. If your school is looking for money-saving projects this year, it would be worthwhile looking at our Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing (CCET) qualification. By completing this course, you will be able to fulfil the majority of your setting’s educational testing requirements, saving money on external providers.
The CCET course can be completed online or via a 3-day intensive course. Our next face-to-face intensive CCET course will be taking place on 23-25 January at the Cottons Hotel in Knutsford, near Manchester. It is an open access course and is therefore completed by a wide range of education professionals from a variety of settings, including teachers, SENCOs, teaching assistants, tutors and education officers. The intensive option offers a speedy route to completion, with the majority of work undertaken during the 3-day course. The final assignments will then be completed back in your setting and uploaded for review by your dedicated tutor via our flexible online learning platform.
Gain a postgraduate qualification
Once completed you can join Real Training’s SEND programme as if you have 30 credits at level 7. In this way, completing CCET could be the first step towards gaining a Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert), Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) or a Master of Education (MEd) in SEND. If educational testing becomes something that you are passionate about, you could complete a PGCert in Educational Testing with only one further module after CCET. The CCET qualification also covers all of the British Psychological Society‘s (BPS) competences and standards so at the end of the course, if you wish, you can become a registered Test User with the BPS.
Be ready for September
By completing the course early in the year, you will save your school money for the rest of the academic year and you will also be well prepared for the busy assessment period in the Autumn term. For those schools required to undertake access arrangements assessments, a follow-on module can be completed after CCET so that you can become an official access arrangements assessor in line with JCQ requirements – to be eligible you simply need to have a qualification to teach or work as a teacher/tutor in an independent setting or in higher or further education.
