London Drama Exam Board Courses Review £55.00

London Drama Exam Board Courses Review £55.00

This course takes the form of a meeting with officers from AQA, Edexcel, and Eduqas.

This is an opportunity for the boards to share with you an update of how the first year of the new specification has gone. The speakers will address this subject initially for GCSE and then there will be board specific break out groups for more detailed Q and A afterwards. The model repeats for A level afterwards.

This is your chance to share questions and to seek clarification on any aspect of the first year of the new specification, to maximise opportunities to address these before the end of its second year.

Please be aware that this is not a forum whereby the actual form or content can be discussed as such areas are already set down. However it is the forum for ensuring that the second year of the specification is thoroughly understood early on so as to secure the best possible outcome for you, and your students. We have not run such course before and we are fortunate that the representatives of the examination boards have been willing to give up a Saturday in order to meet with us.

Tutors: Subject Officers from AQA, Edexcel, and Eduqas
Date: Saturday 11th November 2017: 10am-2pm.
Venue:
Goldsmiths, University of London, New Cross.
Non Member Course Fee: £55 -
