Specialist Training for Exams Office Staff

 

Exams Training work in collaboration with awarding organisations to deliver a series of training events for both new and experienced exams officers, SLT and invigilators on behalf of Exams Training throughout the 2018/19 academic year.

 

The experts who launched The Exams Office are responsible for course content and delivery. They have experience as exams officers, members of SLT, devising and delivering DfE exams policies and initiatives, leading government exams support field teams, and creating good practice exam guides which are followed by more than 3000 schools/colleges. The team also consists of awarding body personnel and ex-JCQ inspectors. They will be available throughout the day to answer your questions.

 

Our training events have been designed specifically for:
  • New exams officers
  • Experienced exams officers
  • Senior leaders/Line managers
  • Invigilators
  • Overseas centres

All events include at least two presenters with significant experience of the exams system. All presenters are highly regarded in the field of exams administration and management having served as an exams officer, DfE exams expert, JCQ inspector or as part of an awarding body centre support team.

Exams Training is working closely with The Exams Office and awarding organisations to meet their members’ requests for high-quality training at an affordable price, and therefore delegate rates have been discounted for members of The Exams Office and centres engaged in OCR/Pearson qualifications.
