CPD Course Approval

CPD Course Approval

SASC authorises course providers to design and deliver courses for practising SpLD assessors (or support staff) that are suitable Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and maintain competence.

The aim of the authorisation procedure is to assure the quality of training offered to SpLD Assessors and that providers participating in the scheme will offer appropriate courses that meet SASC criteria.

Authorisation applies to courses that are relevant to the work of SpLD assessors, meet the criteria, and are:

  • public courses specifically designed for SpLD assessors, or;
  • designed specifically for the staff of SpLD support services, SpLD assessment centres, training institutions or independent SpLD assessors.

Provider applicants are required to complete an online application, provide full details of a future appropriate course and pay a non-refundable fee.

Titles of all courses to be registered and any other details required must be submitted to SASC via the online system so that SASC authorisation reference numbers can be ascribed and courses listed on the SASC website.

Courses will not be listed until the provider has been approved and the relevant fee paid. Invoices will be issued on approval. CPD Events, i.e; the dates and times courses will be available and brief details, will be listed on the SASC CPD Database only after fees have been paid.

NB: If the course provider does not run any courses for three or more consecutive years then the authorisation may be terminated or the provider asked to complete the registration process again for future provision.
