Move Up is a key strand of the Move On Up project. It applies the principles of Move On - positive engagement of learners into achievement, focused delivery, national qualifications flexibly delivered and training for trainers of teachers and intermediaries - for learners who are working at Entry 3. Entry 3 practice tests are available by registering with the site. These can be used for formative assessment.
The overall aim of this element of the programme is to improve the effectiveness of individual learning. The support gives priority to the initial and diagnostic assessment processes, the critically important issue of feedback to learners, planning learning and reviewing progress and achievement as well as the role of the Individual Learning Plan (ILP) in guiding the learner journey.
