Educational Testing and Access Arrangements Certificate (ETAAC)
Are you a teacher working in the UK system and wanting to process exam access arrangements? If so, then you must hold a qualification at or equivalent to Level 7 in individual specialist assessment. Our ETAAC course fulfills these criteria and enables teachers in the UK to meet the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) regulations to practice as an access arrangements assessor. In addition, this course meets the professional accreditation to level 9 for Irish participants and is a professionally recognised certificate across Ireland.
Whether your need is for a professionally recognised course to further your skills in the UK or Ireland, the ETAAC through Eirim has you covered!
This professional course, taught by experienced Educational Psychologists, enables educators to develop the highest standards in educational assessment and to use these skills not only to apply for access arrangements in examinations but also to support and identify students with additional learning needs. The presence of a competent, confident and qualified assessor on staff will make a large and positive difference to the way in which students are supported as well as to their outlook and success.

Excellent course, also a great refresher on previous statistical knowledge. Gives great insight into how tests are built and used.
Very satisfied with the course, gave in depth knowledge of different styles of tests and the statistics aspects were fantastic. Brilliant and detailed insight into ed psych reports. Broadened knowledge into how it works
I found the course extremely worthwhile. I feel more confident that I can assess students and report back on findings. Very professional, interesting and engaging. Well worth doing - it will be very empowering!
Very beneficial for teachers / SEN teachers. Very enjoyable. Very beneficial course where the information / learning can be brought back to the workplace. Good mix of listening / learning and hands on activities.
Really enjoyable, very intense but very beneficial. It was very interesting and I've come away with a lot of information. Really opens up your eyes to testing and the work that goes into everything. I now understand where a lot of the information in the manuals come from and how to administer tests and correct them. I can now do things in school that I have not done before.
Very detailed and stimulating
I thought the course was excellent. I will feel far more confident interpreting educational psychologist reports. Also more confident about conducting screening and investigating screening options.
This was an enlightening course. I have been working with testing and psychology reports for many years and this is the first time that I actually feel confident in understanding test results, their reliability and what they actually mean. You only think you have knowledge about diagnostic testing until you attend this course.
This course is a must! It has given me a thorough insight into the reliability of tests which I have used, will not now use and tests I will now buy.
Intense but very worthwhile. I feel I have gained invaluable knowledge in relation to educational testing. I am looking forward to putting all of my knowledge into action and developing my skills.
I was delighted with the course. It was intense but equally invigorating. The tutors were excellent, helpful and available for us throughout the days. This was a thoroughly enjoyable course
Fantastic - very clever explanations of complicated processes. A lot better understanding of what I am doing and why
It is intense but very worthwhile if you are a SENCO as it helps decode Ed Psych reports.
