The introduction of qualifications which are wholly or predominantly based on terminal exams has had a significant impact on teaching, learning and assessment.  

In the face of this change, how do we ensure learners are acquiring and retaining the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to maximise achievement?

This practical, one-day course addresses the challenges faced by teachers and leaders who are preparing students for linear exams.

Delegates will:

  • explore what has been learned so far about the reformed qualifications, and consider the nature and scale of the challenge still to be met 

  • understand how curricula, assessments and internal examinations can be designed to support maximum achievement in linear examinations

  • consider what insights cognitive science can offer learners who need to retain and retrieve knowledge, understanding and skills over time

  • share strategies for supporting the resilience, wellbeing and readiness of students who face up to 33 hours of exams

Suitable for deputy headteachers, assistant headteachers, middle leaders, and colleagues in charge of teaching and learning and assessment in schools, colleges and post-16 education.
