Find out how we can support Initial Teacher Training students

Our Subject Advisor team are here to support teachers delivering our qualifications. Our teachers include experienced senior leaders, heads of faculty, subject leaders, senior teachers, teachers in their early careers, newly qualified teachers and of course teachers in initial teacher training (ITT). We regularly visit ITT providers and run assessment training. 

Following requests, we're making some basic assessment training materials for ITT students available. These are great for training teachers in universities, colleges and schools and can be downloaded below.

Assessment Training materials

  • A PowerPoint covering; Why We Assess, Key Principles of Assessment and Assessment Objectives.
  • A booklet featuring an introduction to the basics of assessment and activities around assessment objectives using exam questions from History, Religious Studies, English, Maths, Computing and Science
  • Answers to the activities in the booklet above.

You can also read Religious Studies Subject Advisor, Ewan Brady's blog describing the work of the Subject Advisor team supporting PGCE students through visits to ITT providers.
