Join us in May for the Cognitive Abilities Profile training

 
Join us in London on 15-16 May to learn about an alternative and unique way to effectively assess your student’s progress.

Our Cognitive Abilities Profile training is designed to train education professionals in how CAP can be used to structure an in-depth individualised assessment for students from early years into adulthood. During the 2-day course, you will cover a range of topics including:

 

  • The principles, key questions and concepts of dynamic assessment and how they apply to CAP.
  • The different models of cognitive processes and the seven functional domains of cognitive abilities.
  • The contents of the CAP toolkit and how to use this to develop informed and effective interventions.

We advise you to purchase a CAP toolkit in advance of the event. This can be purchased on the Dyslexia Action Shop website.

The course is open to anyone who works in the learning and development of children, adolescents and adults, and is particularly relevant for psychologists, therapists, teachers and SENCOs. Book now to attend our 2019 course on 15-16 May at the Novotel London City South hotel. 

To find out more about the Cognitive Abilities Profile training, please visit our dedicated CAP course page online. Alternatively, you can ask our course advisors any unanswered questions by contacting us.

Save time and money with our CCET training

 
We have been told that staff training often gets overlooked as this is something that can be seen as an avoidable expense. But what if staff training actually saves you money, meaning that you have extra budget to spend on other important areas?

CCET Training – what is it?

Every school needs to undertake student assessments during the year – tests to assess for progress as well as for special needs. Many schools invest in Educational Psychologists (EP) or Specialist Teachers to carry out these tests on the school’s behalf. However, did you know that our Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing (CCET) qualification trains educators on how to carry out these services in-house? This can, therefore, lead to reductions in spending on outsourced services or perhaps simply means you are able to afford more meaningful services from your EP or Specialist Teacher, rather than just the standard assessments.

Who and how?

The CCET training is an open-access course so we welcome applications from any of your staff members. However, it is worth noting that the qualifications they hold in addition to CCET will determine which tests they will be able to purchase from the test providers. Please contact us on 01273 358080 for further advice on this.

Our qualification can be completed flexibly online with full tutor support. Alternatively, we offer several 3-day intensive courses for those wishing to fast-track their learning. There are still a few places remaining for our upcoming courses in London and Birmingham this month:

If you are interested in either of these courses, you can book now via our simple online booking form. For further information regarding the course content, please visit our dedicated CCET page online. You can also visit our Certificate in Psychometric Testing, Assessment and Access Arrangements (CPT3A) page if you are interested in your colleague also becoming a qualified Access Arrangements Assessor.

Since we launched CCET in 2006, we have trained over 2500 teachers, SENCOs and other professionals and they are now carrying out educational testing for their schools in the UK and all over the world. If you are interested in investing in in-house expertise in this area and have unanswered questions, please contact us.
