General SATPE Updates

QA/Moderation Groups

A number of schools have signed up and began their QA work across the country allowing teachers to collaborate and work together from a variety of areas, expertise and backgrounds.  If you have signed up for this and haven’t heard back from us please contact me directly and I will do my best to help.

Discounts for members

We are finalising further discussion on member discounts with several suppliers including Joma, Canterbury, Macron and Under Armour.  Please keep an eye out for this as the majority of the deals here will likely be given as single use codes around the time we hold our conference.

Refund

The refunds are well under way and will continue to be implemented by the team at Wigwam.

Pedagogy CPD Opportunity – Retrieval Practice

We have decided to postpone the beginning of our RP coursework until we have a clearer picture of return to classroom based teaching.

Higher and Advanced Higher PE 

We are happy to thank Alex Haskett for her initial session on the Advanced Higher course and marking the assignment.  We will continue to offer a further Advanced Higher session as well as one for the Higher course in due course.  This will hopefully begin from February pending support we can gather from facilitators at both levels.

We will be looking for ways in which to support Higher in the near future, watch this space!

As Always,

If you need anything, have any suggestions on how we can all help each other please do contact me directly on President@Satpe.co.uk
