    Hi there,

    Just wanted to pick your knowledgeable brains about the use of NC Levels at KS3.
    I'm currently looking for my first teaching post and in recent interviews have used the levels in the lesson and it's gone down very well (what with all the new ofsted criteria) - yet haven't secured the job for other reasons.
    I now have an interview for an independent school and wonder whether the levels should be used in the same way, or whether it's considered a bit 'ofsteddy' if you get my drift?
    Advice appreciated!

    Hey Josiejosie
    I would contact the school and/or the art department for further information OR have a look to see if there is any information on the schools website.
    Maybe ask questions like what assessment criteria are they currently using at KS3? Do they use the NC as a base for assessment?
    Hope this helps?!
