Candidates will be more than aware of the difficulties that many of the ALT community are facing in these uncertain times as a result of the current COVID-19 crisis. You are probably finding yourself in a very similar position.
Many of our CMALT Assessors are being called upon to reprioritise workload or may be experiencing ill health during this difficult period. To support candidates and assessors better, we are making the following changes for 2020 submission deadlines for all pathways.
Portfolios currently being assessed
All portfolios already submitted by 30 January 2020 are currently being assessed, but the peer assessment process is progressing slower than usual. We aim to provide results for all candidates by the end of June 2020.
Extra support for candidates and assessors
We will not be accepting any new submissions until 1 August, but we are putting in place support webinars for candidates and assessors and a range of new CMALT events for the start of the next academic year to provide an accelerated support for candidates. If you have already submitted your portfolio between 1 February and 15 May 2020, we will contact you separately in this respect.
Please note : The link to submit portofolios will be made live on this page on the 1 August 2020
Next submission window (30 October 2020)
The usual September deadline will be moved to the 30 October 2020. Assessment processing for this period will take place November, December and January with results issued as soon as possible. Any 3 yearly portfolio reviews that may be due shortly should be submitted in time for the new 30 October 2020 deadline .
We are anticipating that all deadlines and assessment processing times for next year will proceed as normal however will continue to review and monitor the situation and keep you updated accordingly.
If you have any queries at all please do not hestitate to contact us.
