Creating and implementing an effective RARPA process

Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement (RARPA) is a five-stage process that providers can use to measure how well learners are making progress towards their identified chosen destinations.

This is an interactive online training for curriculum managers and practitioners looking for a systematic way to plan provision for learners with SEND, monitor their progress and record their achievements. The training will benefit whole staff teams who are involved in RARPA. It will be helpful if you are planning to introduce RARPA, if you require a refresh, or have new staff who need an introduction to RARPA.

The aims of this RARPA training delivered over two sessions are to:

  • provide an understanding of the RARPA process
  • identify effective implementation of the RARPA process in SEND FE provision
  • understand why effective goal and target setting is so crucial to learner progress
  • improve confidence in setting person centred, aspirational targets and goals.

Session 1: Introduction to effective implementation of RARPA

This session will:

  • explain what RARPA is and why it’s particularly useful in the context of SEND FE provision
  • introduce you to each of the 5 RARPA stages
  • provide the opportunity for you to assess how RARPA is used or can be developed in your setting, whatever your starting point
  • support your implementation of RARPA systems through the creation of an action plan.

Session 2: Goal and target setting in the RARPA process

Session two will:

  • explore why effective goal and target setting is so crucial to learner progress
  • review and understand why goals and targets need to be SMART
  • practice developing SMART goals and smaller targets
  • develop your skills in writing SMART goals and targets.
