Welcome to Read On Publications
At Read On Publications, we promote good practice in vocational teaching, assessment and quality assurance. We've been training teachers, assessors, IQAs and EQAs for over twenty years and all our products are based on practical experience and common sense. If you are an assessor or IQA, or are responsible for their training, we have resources, courses, information and advice to help you.
'The best assessor’s guide' and 'The best initial assessment guide'
Both for £35.00 plus P&P
This special offer for January and February means you can get 'The best assessor’s guide' and 'The best initial assessment guide' in one package. These best-selling guides from Hilary Read have helped thousands of vocational trainers and assessors achieve an assessor qualification and to set up robust initial assessment procedures. What sets these guides apart from a traditional text book is their high production values and range of real-life examples, helping readers to understand what good practice looks like.
This offer means you can choose any combination of these two guides.
The best initial assessment guide
£30.00 (plus postage and packing)
This simple-to-follow guide is aimed at all those involved in initial assessment (IA) and recruitment of learners and makes the business case for getting it right - from the start! The guide is an essential companion for anyone working towards an initial teacher training qualification or who gives advice and guidance to learners and contains templates and examples based in real practice for those wishing to design a robust IA system.
An excellent guide that provides the principles of effective initial assessment with some great examples.

The best assessor's guide
£25.00 (plus postage and packing)
This best-selling guide is for everyone with responsibility for assessing whether new to the role or experienced. Based on best practice in assessment, the guide provides invaluable help with the skills assessors need to update their practice, develop within the role or gain one of the assessor qualifications.
I received my copy of the best assessor's guide this morning, and have already seen a couple of best practice ideas that I can apply to my delivery and assessment of the TAQA qualifications and that will improve on what I already thought was a quality model of delivery and assessment! It just goes to show that you need to continually update yourself. I'm looking forward to seeing The best quality assurer's guide, especially if it is as good as this one. Well done, I really like it.

The best quality assurer's guide
£30.00 (plus postage and packing)
This practical guide is for those with responsibility for internal or external quality assurance, new or experienced and is the ideal companion for anyone working towards one of the qualifications in internal or external quality assurance. It contains practical examples of policies, procedures and practices based on good practice.
Hilary's books about assessment and quality assurance (internal and external) really help people to understand the occupational standards for assessment and quality assurance. Things have changed hugely in this field with the QCF and it is really helpful to use these guides as a good CPD tool for existing Assessors, IQAs and EQAs. Sometimes we forget that changes happen and Hilary's books really help with how to implement these.
