After the assessment

After the assessment you will be asked to give some feedback about how you found the process, and your assessor will receive a copy. Your assessor will also provide feedback to the REQM administrator and your school will receive a copy.

If appropriate, we would also like to use photographs of your work for the REQM website. These should be submitted with your feedback, and we will assume all necessary clearances and permissions have been obtained under the school’s own DBS and GDPR arrangements. (Please read the code of conduct for assessors.)
