THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will bring together key policymakers and stakeholders from across the education sector to consider the impact of A-level reform on schools and colleges.
It follows the first assessment opportunity in June for reformed A-levels in phase one subjects, and takes place in the context of the initial teaching of phase three reformed subjects from September this year.
Delegates will discuss the emerging thinking on the decoupling of the AS-level, including the future position of the AS, implications for the curriculum and pupils’ subject choices as well as key issues for the teaching profession such as the setting of predicted grades. With the latest results showing a fall in A* grades in reformed subjects, this seminar will also be an opportunity to consider whether further reform is needed.
Additional sessions consider the relationship between A-levels, higher education and future employment and whether the removal of the AS allows students to participate in extra-curricular activities at 16-19 and ensure a rounded learning experience.
