Assessment Excellence Programme

A growing number of schools are partnering with us through our Assessment Excellence Programme to deliver a 'whole-student' approach to assessment.

Partner Schools will use our assessments to gain a complete understanding of each individual learner’s needs including attitude, ability and attainment. This allows teachers to make informed teaching and learning decisions and to track progress effectively over time. It also provides evidence of progress to accreditation bodies and key stakeholders such as parents, school boards and school owners.

Why become a Partner School?

We work very closely with Partner Schools that support our vision to gain a complete understanding of each individual learner’s needs. Our bespoke partnerships ensure that we deliver the greatest possible outcomes for our Partner Schools, other schools and their students. We would like to

  • Give you recognition for your excellent use of data,
  • Give you the opportunity to become a local expert, supporting schools in your region,
  • Give you the opportunity to provide feedback on assessments, potentially influencing the future direction they take,
  • Provide access to online and regional training events to help support your development.
