Technology and the CIF - RAPTA workshop


Published on

This workshop explored a self-assessment tool for Recording And Planning for Technology in Action, called RAPTA. There was an opportunity to explore the potential of the tool, and find out how it links to your organisational Self Assessment Reporting (SAR) processes, Quality Improvement Plan and the Ofsted Common Inspection Framework (CIF). There were also activities using the tool to encourage self assessment of effective use of technology and sharing of good practice with technology.
