Speaking, Listening and Communication (SLC) Standardisation Videos

To ensure consistent assessment, to national standards, staff who are going to be involved in assessing the SLC component of FS English at L1 and/or L2 must view video clips and complete standardisation documentation. This must happen before carrying out live assessments of your candidates.

Please note, the completed standardisation task should be made available to EVs upon request and retained for audit purposes.
