For the first time in 28 years, the Education Show moves to London in January 2019.
Alongside edtech event Bett, its extended offer will include hundreds of suppliers, CPD content presentations and the world’s largest gathering of the education community. The show gives school leaders, business managers and teachers the benefit of saving time and energy by being able to purchase school essentials in one place.
NFER will be in Hall 9 and 10, stand F48. Come along to speak to one of our assessment experts and explore our range of assessment materials for schools. We’d be delighted to show you our termly standardised assessments for KS1 and KS2, used by thousands of schools to support confident attainment and progress monitoring, as well as introduce you to NFER Classroom, the destination for research, resources and guidance specifically for school practitioners.
Liz Twist, NFER’s Head of Assessment Research and Product Development, will be running a session on ‘Monitoring progress in a meaningful and manageable way’ on Thursday 24 January in the Pedagogy in Practice Theatre from 11:50 – 12:20.
Recognising the progress pupils make from their differing starting points is a central part of DfE policy and the current Ofsted framework, and this session will look at how pupil progress throughout key stages 1 and 2 can be monitored in a meaningful and useful way, meeting the needs of different stakeholders without being unduly burdensome. Liz will outline:
- How assessment data can enlighten and how it can mislead
- The sort of questions school and subject leaders could ask
- Seeing the big picture(s) in the data
On the same day in the Business in Practice Theatre between 13:50 and 14:20, NFER also has Jack Worth speaking on the future of teacher supply and how to retain good teachers. Jack will explore the following questions:
- How big a challenge is teacher supply, now and in the future?
- What helps to retain teachers? What can we learn from teachers who have left the profession?
- What working conditions help to keep teachers engaged and satisfied in their jobs?
- Is part-time and flexible working problematic for schools or part of the retention solution?
This is your opportunity to come and speak to NFER directly at the Education Show 2019 so don’t forget to register and visit us on stand F48.
