Transitioning to Our New Frameworks Webinar

Earlier this week we ran our ‘Transitioning to B Squared's New Frameworks’ webinar. The webinar not only helped customers understand how easy it is to transition to the new frameworks with Connecting Steps, but answered a number of questions we have already been asked as well as others we believe we will be asked in the coming weeks.

Don't worry if you missed it, you can watch the recording here:

 

 

What has changed?

Our new assessment frameworks are similar to our old frameworks in approach, they break down the Primary National Curriculum into smaller steps. Our break downs have been designed to be age-neutral so can be used by pupils from key stage 1 to key stage 4 - the highest levels contain content from the secondary curriculum.

The biggest difference is the levelling structure the frameworks are based on. Another difference is the order the government feels skills should be achieved; a number of skills have been moved around in Maths compared to the P Levels, which schools need to be aware of.

We also released our framework comparison chart in the webinar. Schools will find this chart extremely useful as they move away from P Levels and change the language used in school. The conversion chart shows how Engagement Steps, Progression Steps and Primary Steps compare to the P Levels and National Curriculum Levels.

How to transition?

Transitioning to the new frameworks is nice and easy and is completed in 6 simple steps:

  1. Contact our Support Team, let them know you want to transition
  2. We will recalculate all your data (may take 24 hours), we will let you know when this is complete
  3. Run ‘Confirm Levels Complete’
    ***You must remain logged in for 10 minutes after you start this process for the process to complete***
  4. When this is complete let our support team know (reply to your ticket)
  5. We will transfer your completed level data and let you know once this has been done
  6. Turn off old frameworks

The important thing to remember before you transition is to make sure both you and your data are ready. As part of the webinar we included a number of handouts, these can be downloaded by clicking on the links below:

If you wish to upgrade to our new frameworks please contact us on 01252 870133 or by emailing sales@connectingsteps.com for a quotation. The cost is based on the number of users, the number of subjects and when you purchased Connecting Steps, so will need to be priced individually for each school.

If you have any questions about transitioning please contact our support team by calling 01252 870133 or by emailing support@connectingsteps.com.

The smart way to evidence learning

An introduction to Evisense

Jon Twycross 0 89

Last Tuesday I ran a webinar introducing Evisense and it's features. We have previously gone into great depth when delivering our training webinars. This time we wanted to take a step back and differentiate the webinar so it was accessible to the most number of people.

Have you heard of the Virtual SEND Conference?

Dale Pickles 0 305

On the 22nd March 2019, B Squared ran its first SEND-focused conference to provide support for schools and professionals. The conference was designed to benefit the whole education sector, including mainstream teachers, SEND school staff and anyone else seeking high-quality CPD courses in SEND-related topics. Those who are familiar with B Squared understand that we don’t just follow everyone else; we look at a problem and work out the best solution.

Cyber Essentials Certification

Jon Twycross 0 731

We have now completed our Cyber Essentials Certification for the year. Whilst this is broad in its approach, it helps to ensure that even the smallest of companies are thinking about online security and helping to keep themselves secure. As a company or school, going through the Cyber Essentials certifications helps draw you attention to the flaws in your internal processes and security. Raising these early helps prevent your system from being...
