Course Planning and Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement (RARPA/ILPs)
Please use these documents, or adapt the format to your own delivery. Copies should be available to ACL staff conducting Observations of Teaching, Learning and Assessment, and unannounced Class Visits.
Here are some possible ILP formats but as a tutor you need to ensure that the format you use meets the needs of your learners, AND satisfies the RARPA criteria. Please discuss with your manager or Provider Quality Managers (Clare/Amanda). Please also see the RARPA audit checklist below. EACH LEARNER NEEDS TO HAVE AN INDIVIDUAL LEARNING PLAN IN SOME FORMAT.

Depending on your learners, you may find these Skills Check assessments useful to check the levels of English and maths. They should always be used for learners on Family Learning and Employability courses of 20 hours or more. You can request hard copies from the ACL service, via your manager.
Please print out these documents as required, complete, and keep a copy in your file.
