Tranent Cluster CfE Assessment In-Service

The Tranent teachers came together on Monday 25th October and held a CfE Assessment In-service as a cluster.

The morning began with a workshop activity on Building the Curriculum 5 and AifL, facilitated by myself. You can see the powerpoint I used below.

As part of this activity, the teachers summarised the key differences in BtC5 and then shared their top key difference in groups. You can see the full summaries below, but some of the emerging themes included:

  • Engaging/involving pupils and parents in assessment
  • Varitey of assessment approaches
  • Assessing skills
  • Moderation activity
  • New National Qualifications
  • The National Assessment Resource

After a coffee break, the teachers then had the opportunity to hear from David Cameron. David was as engaging and inspiring as always and really cut to the heart of what teachers and schools needed to do in order to implement Curriculum for Excellence.

You can see David’s presentation below:

A huge thank you to all involved in the morning!

New LTS Website

The new LTS Website is here.

The new website brings together information and resources from a range of former LTS websites (including Curriculum for Excellence, Glow Scotland, Enterprise in Education, Global Citizenship, Inclusion and Equality and many more) to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for and make links across all areas of learning.

LTS: Supporting implementation of Curriculum for Excellence

LTS have produced the above film to promote their growing Curriculum for Excellence support for staff:

Support for Staff Promotional film

Support in using the new experiences and outcomes, curriculum planning and assessment approaches is available online now. To find out more watch a short promotional film, produced by LTS to raise awareness amongst the education community of the wide range of support available to assist with implementation of Curriculum for Excellence. The film is split into three key sections:

  1. Support in using the experiences and outcomes promotes the resources available in the ‘Support for Staff’ web area.
  2. Supporting curriculum planning promotes the support available in the ‘Building your Curriculum section’.
  3. Supporting emerging approaches to assessment, promotes examples of how some schools have started to develop assessment practices.

New Emerging Approaches to Assessment

The Emerging Approaches to Assessment web area launched today with almost 100 examples of approaches to assessment – now available online.

‘How to use the Emerging Approaches to Assessment’

LTS has devised an electronic leaflet to assist practitioners in their understanding of ‘How to use the Emerging Approaches to Assessment’.

Assessment In-Service Day Support

Support for the additional in-service day has also been made available in the ‘Getting Started’ area of the Emerging Approaches to Assessment web area. Here you will find useful resources to help you get more from the day.
