Learner Reviews for Practitioners

There are no open events scheduled for this topic. It may be run as an open event again in the future. Alternatively, we can run it as a bespoke internal event for your organisation.


Making Reviews a More Effective Experience

Achieving grade 1 and 2 at Inspection requires that all key processes are working as effectively as possible. Inspection reports continue to show that Progress Reviewing is an under-developed process in many organisations. When carried out effectively, learner progress reviewing can make an important contribution when judging and attributing grades to the “quality of teaching training and assessment”. Effective Progress Reviewing also motivates and engages learners. It does this by helping to ensure Learners have a very clear understanding of the knowledge and skills they are achieving, and by quickly identifying and addressing any emerging barriers to progress.

This workshop is designed to help practitioners make progress reviews more effective and in doing so help improve success rates.

For Whom

This intense and highly interactive workshop has been designed, primarily, for practitioners who are responsible for ensuring learner progress, success and achievement on Apprenticeship, Foundation Learning, DWP and other similar programmes.

The workshop also offers significant value to those managers who have responsibility for the quality and outputs of learner progress reviews and are looking to understand better, what a good review looks like and the ways to present this knowledge on to their staff.

Aims and Objectives

The aim of the workshop is primarily aimed to help participants ensure that progress reviews are a stimulating experience for learners, in which all aspects of learner progress and achievement are captured and clear, measurable, follow on achievement targets are agreed and understood by all parties.

As a result of attending this workshop participants will be able to describe and explain how to:

Internal Staff Training and Development

This training workshop, along with most of our other best practice training workshops, can be delivered as an internal training course at your premises. Even with groups as small as 6-8 delegates, the course fees per person for internal training workshops can be lower than for open events. The potential savings are even greater, if the travel time and the travel costs of the delegates are included.

Running training workshops internally is very convenient and it allows the participants to explore how key issues will impact on them and their organization. Then as a team they can begin to agree upon a development action plan, with priorities. This approach is favoured by many of our clients as it combines a high quality service with excellent value for money and is a highly effective route for staff development.
