AELP – A Day with Ofsted

16th March 2020 MET Hotel – Leeds

Chris Quickfall will be presenting at this one-day conference in Leeds. The ‘A Day with Ofsted’ event will provide an overview of the Chief Inspector’s annual report and will also give delegates the chance to learn about how things have changed significantly under the new Education Inspection Framework (EIF). In respect of the EIF, delegates will hear from both HMI’s and recently inspected providers of their experiences so far.

Chaired by AELP’s Mark Dawe, the keynote address will be made by Paul Joyce HMI, Ofsted’s Deputy Director for Further Education and Skills and have input from Chris Jones HMI, Ofsted as well as a range of inspected providers.

Come and talk to us about how Cognassist can help you raise the quality of delivery for learners with additional learning needs. Our experts will be happy to take your questions.

Reasonable adjustments and supporting learners with SEND – ensuring first-time success at end-point assessment

2nd April 2020 10:30 - 11:15am Webinar

One of the key issues of our times is providing a quality learning experience that doesn’t discriminate against learners with additional support needs. So, ensuring that your training organisation meets the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 is an essential part of any inclusion strategy.

Join Dr. Louise Karwowski as we focus on the responsibilities of the provider and end-point assessment organisations (EPAO’s) under the legislation. This informative webinar will ensure you reduce risks to your organisation, improve achievement rates and provide the best possible experience for your learners.

In 45 minutes you’ll be able to benchmark your performance against others in the sector and see case studies and examples of reasonable adjustments in practice. Louise will also explain the process of applying for reasonable adjustments to be made so you can ensure first – time success at end-point assessment.

In this webinar you’ll learn more about:

  • building a wider understanding of reasonable adjustments and the legal context
  • raising awareness of the support available to training providers, EPAO’s and learners around reasonable adjustments
  • sharing good practice on how organisations have applied for a range of reasonable adjustments

The Education Inspection Framework and SEND learners – improving the quality of your provision with Marina Gaze

On Demand Webinar

The Further Education and Skills Handbook 2019 says:
‘Before making the final judgement on overall effectiveness, inspectors must evaluate the extent to which the education and training provided meets the needs of all learners. This includes learners with SEND and those who have high needs.’
This statement makes it very clear that Ofsted sees learners and apprentices with SEND as hugely important. In this 45-minute webinar, you’ll hear from Marina Gaze, former Director of FE and Skills at Ofsted, about how to improve the quality of provision for learners with SEND.

You’ll learn more about:

  • How SEND learners are now high profile in the EIF
  • Why you should ensure that you quickly identify any additional learning support needs and plan learning to meet these needs
  • Why it’s important to individualise learning and support to meet learners’ needs and help them embed concepts into their long-term memory
  • Why impact is so important and how you can help learners improve, develop, and achieve.

Cognition, neurodiversity and personalised learning – an introduction with Dr. Louise Karwowski

On Demand Webinar

In recent years, learning providers have become more inclusive and supportive of learners with additional learning needs. But there is still work to be done when it comes to neurodiversity, at the very least so learning providers can meet their obligations under the Equality Act 2010. Personalisation is key to ensuring success for individuals who are neurodiverse.
Now you can learn more about this essential topic in this free LIVE webinar from Cognassist’s Head of Science, and neurodiversity expert, Louise Karwowski. In this 30-minute webinar you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of how the ‘8 domains’ of the brain impact learning and thinking and how to identify and support neurodiversity.

You’ll learn more about:

  • Which processing ‘domains’ of the brain affect thinking and learning
  • How you can work with a learner to maximise their learning potential
  • How brain profiling works and how making simple changes can be transformational for the learner
  • How cognitive assessment provides you with a different perspective on your learner cohort

Whether you are familiar with the principles of neurodiversity and how it impacts learning outcomes or not, this webinar will build your knowledge and provide you with invaluable advice.
