With increased pressure on budgets to support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), now is the perfect time to invest in upskilling yourself or another member of the support team to ensure that you can provide the best support for your students and work more effectively with your external service providers. Our Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing (CCET) is a great way to start making savings and provide more effective in-school services straight away.
Make a greater impact by gaining educational testing skills
Saving money on external services is incredibly important but it is not the only benefit of CCET. By bringing these educational testing skills or services in-house, you also save time as you do not need to wait for someone else to fit your school into their busy calendar. You will be able to test the children who need testing according to your own schedule. So, without time or budgetary limitations, you are likely to be able to test a greater number of children in the school and therefore make a substantial difference to the lives of these children. This is what our delegates have found:
“A greater proportion of students will now be tested as there will not be the need to call in outside agencies. This will help to measure the impact of interventions more and ensure that we have appropriate strategies in place.”
– Emma Rushton, CCET delegate 2018
“I am now in a position to test children that the school has not being able to afford to test, as we currently buy in that expertise at a great expense. This will open avenues to many children previously unable to be tested as needed.”
– Sandra Francis, CCET delegate 2018
To find out more, take a look at our dedicated CCET page online, or our CPT3A page if you are looking to become a qualified Access Arrangements Assessor. We have intensive face-to-face CCET courses coming up in September in Manchester and London, so plan ahead for the new academic year and book now to avoid disappointment. This is a great way to study for the CCET qualification as it gives you the chance to fast-track your educational testing skills and share best practice ideas with the other delegates and the facilitators over the three days.
