Naace, the education technology association, has announced that it will extend schools’ NaaceMark Accreditations for six months in light of the current situation. With many schools facing uncertainty and working hard to adapt to remote learning and working, Naace is looking to make life easier wherever possible. Understanding that many schools are proud of their ongoing NaaceMark Accreditation, Naace is taking away the pressure of reapplying so that educators can focus their efforts where they’re really needed.
This might not be the best time for schools to be planning their NaaceMark Award application, so as a trusted Naace partner Eummena is extending all accreditations set to expire before the end of the 2019/20 academic year by six months to allow for more time to manage renewals.
Phil Blackburn, Chair of Naace, commented: “Here at Naace, we can see that teachers are working hard to help their students adapt to home learning and continue developing – all while having to adapt themselves. We’re very keen to support schools and teachers in any way we can given the current situation, so it made perfect sense to extend accreditations set to expire within the next few months.” Schools may still choose to apply for NaaceMark renewal if they are able to, but there is no pressure to do so.
