Ofqual is inviting teachers to attend workshops to help them evaluate the impact of the reformed qualifications. The workshops will offer the opportunity for teachers to provide their perspectives on the assessment of reformed GCSEs, AS and A levels that are having their first award this summer.
The workshops will cover the following subjects:
- GCSE and A level Chinese
- GCSE and A level design and technology
- GCSE and A level film studies
- GCSE and A level media studies
- GCSE and A level statistics
- GCSE business
- A level mathematics and further mathematics
- A level geology
- A level politics.
The decisions about whether to run workshops in all of these subjects will be made based on interest and capacity. The feedback from the workshops will contribute to Ofqual's thinking about the effectiveness of the reform programme.
The workshops will be held in November at the Ofqual office in central Coventry, within walking distance of the main railway station. These are free events with a limited number of places. Your travel expenses will be reimbursed and lunch will be provided.
Ideally, Ofqual would like teachers to have taught the qualification, in its legacy and its reformed version. This is so you can comment on the changes and challenges of the new qualifications and how they have been addressed.
Register your interest in attending a workshop here.
Ofqual will email individuals by the end of September to confirm if you have been selected to take part in the workshop.
