In association with 

18th May 2017, Hilton City Centre, Leeds

2017 e-Vocational
Conference from
Assessment Tomorrow

A one day conference exploring the use of technology to support, enhance and manage assessment and qualifications and their impact on, and implications for,  Assessment Organisations, professional bodies, learners, providers and the vocational sector.

Recent developments in the use of technology in vocational qualifications.

With the ever changing face of vocational education and training, the next five years or more will prove a challenge, yet again, to Awarding Organisation and providers alike.

Both the rise of apprenticeships and the advent of T-Levels will alter the vocational landscape in a way not yet predictable.

 

As always this will provide both opportunities and challenges


 

While these disruptive elements to the system are occurring, advances in technology will also alter the way AO, providers and others approach assessment, both formal and informal.  

 

The trend towards more independent, end-point assessment increases the need for formative assessment to confirm learning and prepare learners to achieve their potential.  

 

The ability of technology to manage formative assessment, provide fast results and feedback and create valuable data for to support learning, will, inevitably, increase its use.

This event looks at both the current technology landscape in vocational e-assessment and the trends and new opportunities that could support the changes in vocational qualifications and assessment.  

 

A wide range of experienced speakers from across all parts of the sector

 

assessment specialists,

AOs,

providers and

technology providers

 

will present their view of where the technology might take us and how we should go about making the best use of the technology available.

Assessment Tomorrow

About Us

The take up of e-Assessment is increasing world-wide.  Educators, trainers, Government Agencies and test providers are actively engaged in developing technology based assessment solutions that enable them to provide robust, reliable, flexible assessment for students and employees.


Assessment Tomorrow is one of the leading international organisers of conferences and seminars in  e-Assessment. Drawing on expertise from the UK, Europe and worldwide, it organises conferences and seminars aimed at providing policy makers, assessment developers and people implementing e-Assessment in schools, colleges and training providers with the opportunity to debate the issues and find out about the latest developments.  


To date, conferences have been run in London, Leeds, Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Dublin, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Bangalore, Singapore, Chile, Dubai, and across India. Each event has its own theme, aimed at a particular aspect of the market or the development needs of the region. These have been spear-headed by the international e-Assessment Question run each year in London since 2003.
 
The conferences provide opportunities for e-Assessment and Learning Technology organisations to sponsor and exhibit as well as provide speakers with the opportunity to present to audiences which include key purchasers and users of assessment systems.  

Assessment Tomorrow will also tailor and design seminars for individual companies or organisations such as Government agencies.  


Be it a series of breakfast meetings or a one day seminar, Assessment Tomorrow will organise, promote and manage events aimed at particular groups of clients or for the launch of new products and services. 

For this conference we are supported by and working in association with: 
Federation of Awarding Bodies
