'The Value of Implementing Technology in Apprenticeships'
Assessment Tomorrow Half-day Seminar - Hilton Central Leeds, Thursday, 17th November 2016 Delegate Registration fee: £65 plus VAT
Announcing a half day seminar exploring the use of technology to support, enhance and manage assessment and learning within Apprenticeship training and qualifications; a seminar for providers, assessment bodies, managers, employers, HR, and technology suppliers.
The focus towards high stakes end point assessment and away from the models of continuous assessment that have operated in the vocational qualification sector will present some intriguing and momentous challenges. In designing the end point assessment, there will be significant value both in terms of efficiency and accessibility for apprentices if technology is brought to bear on the process. In addition, the use of suitable technology enhances the employability skills of the learners by enabling the assessment to represent "real world" employment practises.
There is an opportunity to encourage the use of flexible digitally enabled assessment tools, these might include virtual reality and other appropriate assessment technologies along with more commonly used online testing systems.
At the seminar, speakers will address the issues from a range of viewpoints including the standards development, the assessment development and the provision of suitable assessment delivery systems. Speakers include Institute for Apprenticeships/DfE, City and Guilds Kineo, Digital Assess, Jisc, Calibrand, eCom Scotland
