How to Improve your Value Added Score Workshop

Tuesday 15 October 2019 |Birmingham

Ensuring students pass their courses isn’t enough anymore. The Value Added and progress measures have evolved to measure progress made by students from a particular starting point. Instead of simply focusing on student’s pass rates colleges needs to concentrate on getting high grades.

Ofsted Inspections are now increasingly focusing on progress measures. This workshop is designed to help you improve your college Value Added (progress) Scores.

The workshop will provide delegates with an overview of Value Added and progress Methodologies and will support you to develop an action plan which can be implemented at your college. This action plan will look at the overall Level 3 progress measure as well as the English and maths progress measure. It will help you identify what you should do better at your college and what steps you should take to improve your score.

This practical workshop will include case studies to demonstrate how these colleges have achieved consistently high scores.

GDPR in FE a Year On: An AoC Best Practice Workshop

Wednesday 16 October 2019 | London

Since the introduction of GDPR in May 2018, the way in which personal data should be handled has changed.  Many organisations are still trying to get to grips with the new legislation and how it should be applied in an educational setting.

Many organisations are still struggling to get to grips with the requirements of GDPR and are unaware of the exemptions to it made in the Data Protection Act 2018.  Internal Audits are beginning to ask searching questions as to how data is managed and are seeking assurances that this is in accordance with the new legislation.

This workshop will provide you with the current best practice and foundational knowledge necessary for your organisation to avoid costly errors and stay safe in what can be a data minefield whilst also considering what has happened since GDPR came into force.
