Intelligent Target Setting and Effective IAG in Years 11 – 13

This half day event combines two key elements which significantly affect preparation and outcomes for post-16 – changing student support needs and establishing performance expectations . Reliable, realistic and justifiable target setting and effective student support are fundamental to success in sixth form. This session is designed to provide in-depth consideration of the target setting process and the relationship between student progress and support. It also considers the changing needs of student support during Years 11-13. Carefully considered guidance is even more important with the changing nature of post-16 education and has a direct impact on student performance and your outcomes.

It will:

    • look in depth at how you can set appropriate, justifiable and challenging targets;
    • active use of targets in tracking student understanding;
    • resources to support student choice and setting targets;
    • the changing nature of IAG from Y11 post-16 course selection to Y13 leavers;
    • the importance of active support and monitoring of students
