This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders, governors and teaching staff with insight into contingency planning and arrangements for GCSEs, AS and A levels, the Advanced Extension Award and Project qualifications in summer 2022.
In November 2021, Ofqual published guidance on arrangements for exams and non-exam assessments in summer 2022. Despite the government’s clear intention that exams should go ahead as usual, the guidance includes contingency plans for schools, in case exams have to be cancelled again due to the pandemic.
In this webinar, Stefan Fusenich, experienced teacher, educator and DfE subject learning coach, will provide insight into arrangements for summer 2022 exams and non-exam assessments, and clarify how schools should undertake student assessments as part of an evidence-gathering process for Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs), in the event that exams are cancelled.
