[ICT@ESF Logo]


  • To better prepare ICT Support Assessors for their role in school


The objectives are to give Support Assessors the opportunity:
  1. for revision of the ESF ICT scheme
  2. to collect, share and moderate samples of work already done for the scheme (samples from both UK and ESF sources/teachers)
  3. to be introduced to further materials to help Support Assessors from ICAA, and
  4. to have questions answered.
In addition the objectives include:
  1. give ICAA the opportunity to finally accredit the Support Assessors.


  • KGV Sixth Form Center


  • Completed uploading evidence to the ICAA website that shows the TTA Outcomes have been achieved...... OR
  • Have worked through the online units
  • It would be appreciated if this could be done by the end of April in order to give ICAA staff the opportunity to look at the uploaded material before the visit

VISITS (Wed. & Thur 24th and 25th May 2000)

    The two facilitator would like to visit some schools (time does not allow visits to all) in order to talk with Support Assessors and actually collect samples of work to be used by all the Support Assessors at the meeting on Friday.
    Work should have already be uploaded onto the ICAA site but these visits will be looking (requesting) paper copies to make the Friday session more manageable ..... and obviously asking for your permission to use the materials.
    Liz Hankin will be visiting 4 primary schools and Trevor Pedley four secondary.
