About the Webinar

This webinar will provide headteachers, school leaders, subject leads and all teaching staff with an understanding of how schools will be expected to provide teacher assessed grades for summer 2021.

On the 25th February, the DfE published their ‘Awarding qualifications in summer 2021’ guidance. The guidance outlines the decisions taken to support students and teachers following a consultation published in January on how GCSE, AS and A level grades should be awarded in summer 2021.

In this webinar The National College will explore what the arrangements for undertaking assessments are, how the quality assurance and appeals processes will work and what the awarding process for vocational and technical qualifications and other general qualifications is.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding what assessment evidence teachers can use when making judgements and deciding on how to balance different sources of evidence.

  • Understanding the differences and how the process in place for awarding grades and qualifications has changed from the guidance released for summer 2020.

  • Recognising how teachers should form their judgements and what they may expect in relation to assessment materials.

  • Understanding how the quality assurance processes will work for schools and colleges and how the exam boards will complete checks of their own.

  • Identifying the way appeals will work, how private candidates will be assessed and what the process will be for vocational, technical and other general qualifications.
