Please can you advise on the following.
I would like to know if I already have the Dyslexia Action Postgraduate Certificate qualification in Dyslexia and Literacy (University of York) , have been teaching in schools since 1979, have ATS status, plus being a qualified teacher via teacher training with a 3YR CNAA degree. Have now reached a stage where I have recently taken my pension, will be returning to teach for 2 days in my current school, and if I wish to move towards assessing rather than teaching, can you advise me on the best route to do this.
What up date will I need?
Thank you
Gail Bunyan
