14 + Accreditation from EQUALS

Moving On is a flexible curriculum of five, one year programmes for 14 + students. Courses of study include World Studies, Independent Living and Vocational Skills. Literacy and Numeracy programmes, and Functional Skills are also available. Centres adopting the schemes can receive accreditation that is awarded by EQUALS. This is assessed against clear standards that relate to national norms such as the P Levels. There is no minimum or maximum number of units for which a student may be entered in any one year. The accreditation scheme enables students to be assessed and awarded nationally moderated certificates. For further information, please download the Teacher’ Handbook below.

Regional Training and Moderation Meetings

Support advisors/moderators co-ordinate a regional network for training and external moderation to those schools that register. If you are new to the Moving On programme and wish to find out more about the accreditation, you are welcome to attend a Regional Training day. Please ring your nearest moderator for further information. The training days are informal and offer the opportunity to network and ask questions.
