Standards Check, Part 3 and Beyond Workshop

This workshop is ideal for anyone eagerly anticipating a Standards Check invitation, preparing for a Part 3 or for those wanting to develop skills following the feedback from a recent experience.

The workshop will give you some inside knowledge of what to expect and how to ensure that come the day you feel prepared, as well as giving you an opportunity to see how the criteria you are being graded against is adapted into your everyday teaching.

Louise Walsh has been supporting and training ADIs since the new SC format came in in April 2014. Louise will give you a back seat view of what it's like to be in the hot seat! Having sat in and observed over 80 ADI tests, this makes her well placed to pass on information and advice, real life examples and suggestions on how to avoid the most common pitfalls. To help prepare you for the day Louise will introduce you to some coaching methods such as scaling and mind mapping. The day is yours and adaptable if the needs of the group change.

This workshop cost £99 - includes lunch and refreshments and VAT if we are arranging it.

Time: 8.45am for a 9:00am start - 4.30pm unless other wise stated

'Thanks Lou. I have learnt so much today and it has been really thought provoking. My drive home was interesting, thinking about how I could word questions differently. I do have several weeks until my first attempt at P3, but i shall be putting lots of new ideas into practice right away, so they’re second nature when the day comes. Brilliant course.' PiP

'Just a quick email to say how much I enjoyed the Standards Check workshop yesterday. I had definitely let my own standards drop since passing my Part 3 in September so it was great to put into practice everything I learnt yesterday into my lessons today. The difference I felt in the positive way the lessons progressed was matched by my students' responses to my teaching. If I can continue to work on this I will not feel quite so scared of the dreaded brown envelope dropping through the letterbox.' Emma
