Are you looking to become qualified as an access arrangements assessor this academic year? If so, our Certificate in Psychometric Testing, Assessment and Access Arrangements (CPT3A) will provide you will all the skills and knowledge required to successfully carry out this role and meet the JCQ requirements.
Our highly-regarded CPT3A qualification comprises two modules. The first is the Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing (CCET) which will provide you with an understanding of the underlying principles of all psychometric tests and how to apply this knowledge in your setting – you’ll be able to identify the correct test, use it effectively and interpret the results. The Access Arrangements Course (AAC) will then build on this knowledge and focus on the exam access arrangements process so that you can complete the necessary access arrangements documentation in your setting with confidence.
If you wish to learn at your own pace, you can complete the CPT3A fully online, supported by an experienced and qualified tutor. Alternatively, to fast-track your learning, you can attend one of our 3-day intensive CCET courses followed by the AAC module online or via a 1-day intensive session. The dates of the intensive course are below – we have two CCET intensive courses next month, one in London on 13-15 March and the other in Birmingham on 20-22 March.
London: Novotel London City. 13-15 March | 22-24 May | 3-5 July
Birmingham: IBIS Birmingham New Street. 20-22 March
Bristol: Aztec Hotel. 8-10 May
Leeds: Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa. 24-26 July
London: Novotel London South. 24 May | 28 June
To complete the full CPT3A, you will need to hold ‘an appropriate qualification to teach’ in order to meet the criteria set by the JCQ for all access arrangement assessors. Once you have completed the qualification with us, not only will you be a qualified access arrangements assessor but you will also gain 30 credits at level 7 which you can bring into our SEND Programme to achieve a postgraduate qualification.
