This learning event is right for you if you are responsible for the NCCD in 2020 and would like to share a case study of a student at your school.


Teams of 1-2 from a school (maximum ten schools) are invited to share a case study from their school. Each school attending will be given 5 minutes to share information and receive feedback from the group as to the recommended level of adjustment to be recorded on the NCCD. Schools will be encouraged to share their screens listing the adjustments that they have put into place for the student. Schools will use the chat line to question the presenting school and then all participants will use the chat line to record their recommendation for the level of adjustment. Attending schools will be invited to share their email address with other participants so that further discussions can take place.

Inter-school moderation plays an important part in achieving consistency across the sector in the NCCD.

Key Takeaways                

  • feedback from colleagues in other schools
  • assistance in decision making in relation to the NCCD
