Professional Development Online Workshop: Working with CAT4, Level 2

Professional Development Online Workshop: Working with CAT4, Level 2

Sunday 04 March, 00:00 - Saturday 24 March, 00:00

This series of online workshops are designed and facilitated by practising school leaders who have developed a reputation for the way they work with assessment tools.

The content and structure have been refined through the experience of coaching many international and overseas schools to use the data effectively in their teaching and learning.

The online delivery will accommodate the needs of those school leaders and teachers for whom daytime workload and geographic location make it difficult to attend the face to face workshops we organise at key locations around the world.

This workshop is facilitated by Matthew Savage, Principal, The International Community School, Amman. Matthew has shared his experience of introducing CAT4 at his previous schools at conferences around the world and has delivered training workshops on the use of CAT4 in Asia, Europe and Africa.
