Code: 19ASS/039P Assessing and securing greater depth in Year 6 writing - follow-on session

New for 2019-20, this half-day follow up session is provided for a strictly limited number of delegates who have attended the autumn session of our Assessing and Securing GDS in Year 6 writing course. The same advisers from the English and Assessment teams will deliver the session.

Across the morning, delegates will have the opportunity to explore their pupils’ progress in writing in light of the earlier training and be supported to evaluate areas of strength and areas for further development.

This session will provide plenty of scope for professional discussion around Year 6 writing and progress towards the greater depth standard, as well as the opportunity to share in good practice across a range of settings.

Places are strictly limited in order to facilitate tightly focused professional dialogue and guidance.

Code: MAT/19/142/S Beyond Foundation Tier: Securing Grades 6 and 7 in Year 11

One of the challenges of the current GCSE specification is making the Higher Tier accessible for students who should be gaining Grades 6 and 7. There are many students who are good enough to work beyond the Foundation Tier, but who find the Higher Tier papers daunting.
Using the experience gained, since 2015, of the new-style GCSE, this course will support teachers and schools in enabling such students to succeed.
The day is divided into two equal halves, to enable the course to be shared between different delegates if this is more convenient for schools.
