Are there any PGCE/ITT tutors who are members of the group? AQA offers support to trainees to learn about the work of Awarding Bodies: how specifications and assessments are created, exam data and the opportunity to practise marking. The sessions have a broad focus and are designed to develop trainees’ understanding of the system in which they will eventually work. AQA can deliver sessions either face:face or online and the sessions can be tailored to suit your trainees’ needs. Please contact me if you think that I can help.
