The Well Versed pilot project: An investigation into developing a bespoke qualification for poets working in schools

Project Code:

The purpose of this paper was to investigate the possibilities of creating a qualification that provided development and support for poets and also to provide a quality standard for the work that poets do in schools and how local FE links could be used to support this. In order to do this the activities of the pilot project have been investigated. These activities would form the basis of the poets development programme. In order to convert this development programme into an assessed qualification it must be included in the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF). There are three options for doing this. Each of these is considered with its benefits and limitations. The choice of awarding body is considered comparing National Open College Network (NOCN) and City College Norwich Qualifications (CCNQ). Once decisions about the type of qualification and the awarding body had been made, the next steps would then involve the development process that has been outlined in this report.
