How to become a Dyslexia/Dyscalculia assessor and APC renewal

To become an assessor, you need to successfully complete a postgraduate (Level 7) AMBDA accredited course or equivalent which leads to an Assessment Practising Certificate (APC). The BDA is one of three professional bodies which issues APCs. These bodies are overseen by SASC and all offer and renew APCs in the same way and for the same cost.

For more information see Assessment Practising Certificate page.

Holders of an APC issued by the BDA are required to hold Associate Membership of the BDA (AMBDA).

The routes to Professional Accreditation for Specialist Teachers, Practitioners and Assessors are shown visually in the form of a flowchart here.
