Each September, Exams Training host a series of events across the country developed specifically for experienced exams officers focusing upon exam changes for the new academic year and impact upon your role and exams administration and management in your centre

Experts from The Exams Office deliver this full day event to prepare experienced exams officers for the 2018/19 academic year with a comprehensive summary of the exams-related changes from JCQ, Ofqual and the DfE. They will also be available throughout the day to answer your questions.

A full day course focusing upon the JCQ changes for the 2018/19 academic year from the following publications:

  • Instructions for conducting examinations

We will also demonstrate JCQ’s new Centre Administration Portal (CAP).

Delegates will receive information from DfE and Ofqual relating to the new academic year including an update on Technical Qualifications, Ofqual’s focus upon malpractice and exam statistics relating to the summer 2018 exams series.

There will also be demonstrations of the key features contained with The Exams Office’s new website and their invigilator training and assessment module (to be launched 1 November 2018).

The exam changes for the new academic year will be clearly explained by our presenters, with time allocated to discuss the impact of these changes upon your centre with your peers.
