   Course Summary
No two people with a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) are alike, meaning that all assessments have their challenges! This Patoss Mentoring Scheme is aimed at assessors, working with any age ranges, who wish to improve their report-writing skills with the individualised support of a Professional Practice Mentor.
   Course Detail

This Patoss Mentoring Scheme provides 4 hours of personalised, SASC approved CPD. The content will be planned and agreed between the mentee and mentor at the start of the package, therefore it is appropriate for:

·         Newly qualified SpLD assessors

·         SpLD Assessors approaching APC renewal

·         SpLD Assessors wishing to improve or refresh their current practice

Included in the scheme is one year's subscription to the Patoss Professional Community Forum. The content of the forum is monitored by Patoss.
