We are always seeking to identify schools for ‘model school’ status.


Benefits of becoming a ‘model school’

Model schools will:


- Host visits for teachers interested in Effective Marking


- Have at least one member of staff who is trained by us to deliver Effective Marking INSET and follow-up support visits


- Consistently demonstrate expert practice in marking

Model schools will be entitled to receive:


- Free places on all Effective Marking courses


- An annual audit visit from a senior Effective Marking trainer to ensure continued model school status and to aid ongoing school improvement


- Free membership of www.effectivemarking.co.uk


- Copies of key Effective Marking curriculum projects, including the Istanbul project


- £400 per day of training provided (+ travel and expenses)
