Educational Tests

Learn how to administer educationals tests within your current setting with CCET

We are excited to be coming back to Singapore to deliver another Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing (CCET) course. The intensive 3-day educational tests course will be held on 15-17 November at the Lakeside Campus of the Canadian International School in Singapore. It will be facilitated by Jalak Patel and another of our international educational psychologists. Jalak has previously worked in Hong Kong for five years so is familiar with the challenges of supporting children in international schools.

What is CCET?

CCET is a high-quality course in educational testing, designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge required to be able to identify the correct psychometric test to use in your setting, to use it effectively and to interpret the results. You will be able to apply this knowledge of psychometric tests to a wide range of assessments used in your setting – assessments for progress as well as some special educational needs.

The benefits of CCET

Bringing educational testing services in-house has a wide range of benefits. Here are our top 5:

  • Work more effectively with external service providers, e.g. educational psychologists, making better use of their time (and your money).
  • Have the ability to test a greater number of students without time delays or budget limitations.
  • Develop effective support for all the children in your setting – including the most vulnerable children.
  • Save money on tests with a 10% discount at the Dyslexia Action Shop.
  • Use CCET as a springboard to further professional development – become a qualified Access Arrangements Assessor, gain a postgraduate qualification on our SEND Programme or complete our flexible route to gain the SpLD Assessment Practicing Certificate.

Have you been affected by the EMLC closure?

The Department for Education has recently made us aware of the sad news that EMLC (formerly an NPQ provider) have ceased trading with immediate effect, leaving a large number of candidates mid-way through their course and unable to continue with their training.

Following conversations with the DfE, we are very pleased to say that we are able to help those affected to continue their studies. As an accredited NPQ provider, Real Training can offer EMLC delegates:

  •  Flexible, fully online learning to save you having to find another, less convenient face-to-face location
  •  A one-to-one on-boarding process, fully supported by your tutor, to ensure that the work you have completed to date is recognised and you do not have to start afresh
  •  The assurance that no additional payment will be needed – any payments made to date, or funding received, will be recognised or arranged directly between Real Training and the DfE
  •  The assurance that no additional payment will be needed – any payments made to date, or funding received, will be recognised or arranged directly between Real Training and the DfE
  •  Access to our course, informed by positive psychology, practice-led and hosted on our bespoke Virtual Learning Environment, Campus Online
  • The assurance that, as a growing, international and well-established training company you can be confident that we will be here to support you to the end of your course and beyond
  • The ability to join our Masters courses as if you have 60 level 7 credits, for those successfully completing NPQSL and NPQH

If you would like to learn more about our NPQs, details are on the course websites – NPQMLNPQSLNPQH. Alternatively, you can contact our team of expert advisers by email, or call on 01273 358080.

If you would like to register today please go to our booking form to select your NPQ of choice and then add in the notes section that you are transferring from EMLC. Registering takes only a couple of minutes and we can take it from there.

We appreciate that for those affected this is a stressful time – we will do all we can to help alleviate that stress, and help you continue on your leadership journey.

Through our NPQs, you will further develop your leadership skills, including those needed to effectively implement new improvement plans and strategies into your school, something that the Education Endowment Foundation believes is currently lacking in many schools – see their article ‘Putting Evidence to Work – A School’s Guide to Implementation‘ for more details.

Fully-funded NPQs starting in September

The DfE has confirmed funding is in place for our September cohort so we would advise for you to plan ahead and book now to secure your fully-funded place for September. Funded places are available for leaders and aspiring leaders in:

  • Maintained schools, academies, free schools and PRUs in category 5 and 6 areas
  • All schools in a MAT which includes at least one category 5 or 6 school
  • All schools in a Diocese which includes at least one category 5 or 6 school

Please note: Places within a school, cluster, MAT or Diocese are not limited – so if you have colleagues who you think may also be interested, please don’t hesitate in forwarding this information to them.

We offer NPQs at three school leadership levels – middle leaders (NPQML), senior leaders (NPQSL) and headship (NPQH) – take a look at our dedicated pages online for more information on programme content, funding rules and what you can expect from our leading-edge, inclusive leadership programmes.
