Digital Schools of Europe Validators Course

The course is available on-line on the DSOE website. The course is intended for DSOE validators who require upskilling to be acquainted with changes in the validation process and for trainees who wish to become DSOE validators. This course is of significant importance as we expect the need for validators to increase substantially as the number of schools requesting validation increases. Trainees who request access to the course will have to meet specific criteria and have experience in schools where digital technologies are prevalent.
