When we are teaching day to day we sometimes don’t make time to read about future proposals. We may hear about changes on the news but sometimes are too busy to investigate further. I would say it is worth keeping in touch with the the Joint Council for Qualifications website and the regulatory body Ofqual. Dip into them every couple of months.

This week there have been two important documents released concerning  GCSE changes. One is proposed changes to individual subjects and the other is a review of controlled assessments per subject. You might find the papers a useful read especially if you are a head of department
