SpLD/Dyslexia: Professional Practice in Assessment & Reporting

Patoss is working in collaboration with the University of South Wales to deliver a 30 credit Level 7, SASC authorised module, leading to an Assessment Practising Certificate (APC). This module will provide you with the theoretical foundation, appropriate tools and supervised practice to develop your existing specialist skills into those of the specialist teacher assessor.

This course is designed to enhance students’ existing understanding of SpLD/dyslexia, which will have been established through previous study. To be eligible to undertake the course, there are two possible pathways:

Pathway 1: You will have completed the following:

  • Either the Patoss AAA: Assessing for Access Arrangements or the Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing CCET and
  • a specialist teaching qualification accredited at Approved Teacher Status (ATS) or Approved Practitioner status (APS) level.

Pathway 2: You will have an AMBDA level specialist teacher/assessor qualification gained more than 5 years ago.

Successful completion will enable participants to apply for an Assessment Practising Certificate which endorses a specialist teacher’s qualifications and competence to undertake full diagnostic assessments for Specific Learning Difficulties/dyslexia. 

University of South Wales and Patoss tutors will share delivery of the academic component of the module and Patoss, through its group of professional practice tutors and a dedicated online learning platform, will provide additional support to develop your assessment practice.

The course is due to commence in September 2018 with four London-based attendance sessions which will take place from September to January 2019. Course fees: £2200 per person.

Entry requirements apply so for further information please contact the Patoss lead tutor, Julie Baister, at: jbaister@patoss-dyslexia.org
