This 45 minute session will revisit our guidance shared so far, enabling users to hear the rationale behind it and understand our advice. We will discuss the implications and next steps and will offer support to ensure that users are collating effective assessment.

This course is for schools using EExAT and is ideal for leaders and practitioners to attend together.
