This workshop explores two themes: Validation and Moderation in HSP and Transition in HSP
This workshop features three presentations from experts in the management of School Preparation Courses and an interactive Q&A session.
Workshop Presenters and abstracts:
Michael will explore Validation and Moderation in HSP. He will take us through the NEAS Quality Assurance Framework’s principles pertaining to validation and moderation and will highlight some of the challenges associated with conducting Moderation and Validation in school Preparation Courses.
Vanessa will touch on what we mean by Transition in High School Preparation, and how this concept has evolved over time. She will reflect on when transition actually begins and will share some ways that educators can help HSP students prepare for mainstream, from the very start of their course.
David will look at how Transition from School Preparation to ‘Main School’ is not a point in time on the student journey. To measure successful transition and successful School Preparation, David recommends the need to look for feedback well beyond the point of transition.
