Early Years Practitioners / Teachers / Teaching Assistants
These half day sessions will support you in making accurate assessments for the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile. The sessions will include both moderation and training.
The Standards and Testing Agency’s (STA) Assessment and Reporting Arrangements for EYFS 2018 (ARA, Section 7) states that practitioners responsible for completion of the profile should participate in local authority organised moderation activities in addition to any inter-school moderation activities they may participate in.
The course aims to:
- ensure accuracy of assessments through discussion of some specific Early Learning Goals; - enable you to moderate your assessments alongside teachers from other schools, comparing with nationally agreed standards; - externally validate your assessments.
Please bring assessment records for around ten children. More specific detail will be provided nearer the time to meet STA requirements.
