Free 2021/2022 Access Arrangements Update (AAU) course confirmed

2021/22 Access Arrangements Update

The course is similar to last year’s in that there are two sections. The first section is an overview of the changes led by Nick Lait, Head of Examination Services at the JCQ. In the second section, there are further teaching exercises, videos of test reviews and MCQs which, if completed, give three hours of SASC accredited CPD*.

We are very happy to announce that our free 2021/2022 Access Arrangements Update (AAU) course has been confirmed, and is now available through Campus Online.

If you have already registered for previous years you will be able to access the new course via your Campus Online portal when it is released. If you have forgotten your log-in details, these can be reset automatically.

Whereas in the past the eligibility criteria for access to this update was a level 7 QTS-approved access arrangements qualification, this year, the free update is open to anyone in an educational setting with a professional interest in exam access arrangements, and this applies to both parts of the update. If you have any colleagues who you feel might be interested in this course, please feel free to share this email with them so they too can take advantage of this update.

Please note, this course is in no way a standalone qualification and does not in itself confer the right or ability to carry out access arrangements. If you wish to become qualified as an Access Arrangements Assessor, please follow the link for details of the Real Training CPT3A course.

*Please note, all activities in the second section will need to be completed to give you a certificate confirming 3 hours CPD and the SASC-accredited CPD hours for those that would find them relevant and useful.  

If you haven’t yet registered, you can gain free access by clicking the button below. Signing up takes a matter of seconds, with no lengthy booking forms involved. You can do this at any time.
