Help Ofqual evaluate 2018's new GCSEs, AS and A levels

We're looking for teachers to attend workshops to help us evaluate the impact of reformed qualifications.

We are inviting teachers from across the country to workshops to offer their perspectives on the assessment of this summer’s reformed GCSEs, AS and A levels.

The workshops will be our first opportunity to gather qualitative evidence about things that have gone well and any areas of concern. Your feedback will contribute to our thinking about the effectiveness of the reform programme.

The workshops will be held in October, November and December in a central Coventry location, within walking distance of the main railway station. These are free events with a limited number of places. Your travel expenses will be reimbursed and lunch will be provided.

Ideally we would like you to have taught the qualification, in its legacy and reformed version. This is so you can comment on the changes and challenges of the new qualifications and how they have been addressed.

We are running workshops for teachers of the following GCSE subjects:

  • biology
  • chemistry
  • physics
  • combined science
  • computer science
  • history
  • food preparation and nutrition

We are also running workshops for teachers of the following A level and GCSE subjects:

  • dance
  • drama
  • music
  • PE
  • geography
  • RS
  • French
  • German
  • Spanish

We hope that you are able to take advantage of this opportunity to have your say and share your experiences with us.

Register to attend a November workshop

We will email you by the end of September to tell you if you have been selected to take part in the workshop.
