Does the programme deal with assessing children in EYFS, or any other particular setting?

There is not a specific section for EYFS, nor is there for FE colleges, A-level, secondary or primary schools. However, everything you learn in the Assessment Lead Programme (assessment guidelines, theory, practice, analysis etc.) can be applied to your specific context.

The programme is not restricted to students of a particular age group, and as you go through the programme, you will find that it becomes increasingly tailored, in that you begin to design your own assessments, which are then used for analysis in subsequent modules.

Also, there is reference made to how to align your assessments with your curriculum, and to make that link between teaching and learning. As we don't base the content on a specific curriculum, you can apply the knowledge as applicable to your school, college and stage.
