Event Details

The Engagement Model is the new assessment for pupils working below the standard of National Curriculum assessments and not engaged in subject-specific study. The DfE originally published The Engagement Model guidance in January 2020. The Model is scheduled to become statutory from September 2021.

In the Summer and Autumn of 2020 ourselves and a number of other training providers ran the Standards and Testing Agency’s (STA) Engagement Model training package endorsed by the Department for Education.

We are following this up with our own session that recaps the main principles from the statutory approach as well as some practical ideas around how you might use the model in school for pupils not yet fully accessing subject specific learning.

This session will enable schools to: identify the relevant cohort of pupils; use the engagement areas to observe and assess the level of engagement for individual pupils; and support and evaluate the curriculum for pupils not yet engaged in subject specific learning.

To support this we have released two videos via Sunningdale School’s You Tube channel where James Waller describes the model and the use of the 5 areas of engagement. They can be found here:  Engagement Model

The session will cover:

  • Recap of what the Engagement Model is
  • Exploring what is meant by the term Engagement and each of the 5 areas.
  • Understanding who the Engagement Model is for
  • Implementing the Engagement Model
  • Making links between the Engagement Model and the curriculum
  • Integrating the Engagement Model into your current assessment system
  • How the Engagement Model fit will with the 4 areas of need (EHCP)
  • Reporting progress & Accountability
  • Ofsted

Due to current restrictions, this session will take place via the Zoom virtual meeting platform. We would ask that all those wishing to participate in these sessions watch the videos prior to the virtual training sessions in order to ensure they are familiar with the areas and their uses. All delegates will be sent access codes/ links prior to the virtual sessions.

This session costs £30. You will receive an invoice following confirmation of your place
