Staff at SCD paid to 'Wear their Christmas jumper to work' on Friday 18th December to raise funds for our local St Catherine's Hospice.

 

Awarding Bodies benefitted from a full programme of informative seminars from leaders in their respective fields at the recent Federation of Awarding Bodies annual conference.

Tim Cammack, SCD commented, “The event goes from strength to strength every year. The influential speakers and record breaking number of delegates from across the sector made for a highly interactive and thought provoking couple of days. I would certainly recommend the event to anyone working for Professional and Awarding Bodies.”

The SCD fringe presentation on combining print with e-assessment was very well received by the attending delegates.

Tim explored how innovation in print can keep Awarding Bodies current and how this can be combined with e-assessment, delivering the best of both worlds, and in return gain efficiencies, savings and improved integrity.

If you are an Awarding Body that currently uses printed assessments and are tasked with moving to e-assessment, then this topic will provide food for thought for establishing the right goals and objectives. Contact Tim to see a transcript of this presentation or discuss privately.

The 2016 conference will take place on 20-21 October at the Marriott Hotel Leicester.

 Join us at “Assessment Tomorrow 8th e-Vocational Conference” on19th November 2015.

The thought-provoking topic - “Technology in Support of the Skills Agenda” will be addressed: looking at how technology will need to deliver benefits for the learner, provider, sector and awarding organisation.

The pace at which the skills sector in general is adopting technology for assessment as well as teaching and learning is rapidly increasing.  The FELTAG report has helped as has the constant drive for efficiency as the sector gears up for the next 5 years.   New approaches to qualifications and the apprenticeship agenda are also playing their part. All these topics will be covered by a team of expert speakers throughout the course of the day.

The conference will be held at the Hilton Leeds City. For more information see www.e-vocational.co.uk.

As the assessment world moves headlong towards e-assessment and the printed assessment seemingly being thrown out with the bath water, we will explore how innovation in print can keep Awarding Bodies current and how this can be combined with e-assessment delivering the best of both worlds.

Tim has over 20 years’ experience in the Security Print market holding a variety of roles both in the UK and Overseas.  Tim has audited and advised a number of Awarding Bodies who have then implemented new strategies to bring about efficiencies, savings and improved integrity. During this session Tim will share these experiences and also those from other industries that discarded print on how combining both physical and electronic strategies provides a healthy blend. 

If you are an Awarding Body that currently uses printed assessments and are tasked with moving to e-assessment, then this session will provide food for thought for establishing the right goals and objectives.

Delegates will take away:-

  • Lessons learnt from other industries
  • Current innovation for printed assessments
  • How to get the advantages of combining on-line marking with a printed assessment

Tim will be presenting at the breakfast fringe session on the morning of 23rd October. 

The Federation of Awarding Bodies Conference will take place 22-23 October at the Marriott Hotel, Leicester.
