The Key Stages 2 and 3 external verification programme for English, Welsh, mathematics and science is a key part of the Welsh Government plans to improve the accuracy and reliability of teacher assessments.



The programme commenced in April 2015 and is being delivered by the Partnership, which consists of the four regional consortia working together as a collective body.

A key focus of the programme is to strengthen the accuracy and consistency of teacher assessment through high-quality feedback to teachers, headteachers and local authorities/regional consortia.
