Value Added Workshop – 15th October 2019

The ‘How to improve your Value Added Score‘ workshop will be delivered by Richard Boniface, Managing Director, RCU.

There will an additional guest speaker who will be confirmed shortly and the workshop will also include case studies to demonstrate how colleges have achieved consistently high scores.

The workshop has been designed to 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. The 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 could be done better at your college and what steps you should take to improve your score.

With Ofsted Inspectors now increasingly focusing on progress measures, ensuring students pass their courses is no longer enough. The Value Added and progress measures have evolved to measure the progress made by learners from a particular starting point. Therefore, instead of simply focusing on student pass rates, we need to concentrate on getting high grades.

The workshop is primarily aimed at Vice Principals and Quality Managers.

Objectives of the workshop:

  • – Understand the changes to Value Added/ Progress Methodology
  • – Review the national picture
  • – Develop practical experience by learning from case studies
  • – Discover what works and what doesn’t for different providers

Benefits of attending:

  • – Learn practical information which can be implemented immediately
  • – Good practice shared with colleges
  • – Develop an action plan which will improve your Value Added Score
  • – Grasp the key elements that have worked in successful colleges
