Best Practitioner of the Year (Team) Award
Sponsored by SQA
Winner: Education Development Services Team, Birmingham City University
The Education Development Services (EDS) team at BCU were highly praised for their invaluable support and expertise during the transition to a new digital End Point Assessment (EPA) for BMSE Apprentices.
The nomination underscored the team's comprehensive assistance, from the initial demonstrations of various assessments, through decision-making and exam building, right up to EPA delivery. The positive impact on learners from moving the EPA to a digital exam platform was a standout point in the nomination, particularly the seamless integration with the learners' Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), reducing stress during assessments.
The nomination praised the EDS team for collaborating with educators in the exam-building process, ensuring adherence to EPA plan guidelines, and emphasizing the importance of equal access. Lastly, the nomination emphasized the high value of the holistic support provided by the EDS team, which was a key reason for choosing BCU for the EPA. This support encompassed both educators in setting up the assessments and the learners themselves.
