Proposed conditions and guidance on teacher involvement in the development of confidential assessment materials for qualifications in England.

This consultation closes at

Consultation description

We are seeking views on how we propose to change our regulatory requirements to implement new arrangements on which we have already consulted. This is in order to ensure appropriate safeguards for the confidentiality of assessment materials, in particular where teachers have been involved in their development, and where awarding organisations deliver training to teachers who are teaching the qualification. This follows on from our earlier consultations on these two issues.

This consultation is about the specific wording of the conditions and guidance we propose to put in place to implement our decisions following our two earlier policy consultations. A summary of the decisions we took following consultation and are now seeking to implement are published in the attached document.
