Q&A with Ofqual: Exams and guidance

Chartered College of Teaching are delighted to offer members an opportunity to participate in a live discussion with Ofqual and to pre-submit any questions.  Ofqual is the regulator of qualifications, examinations and assessments in England.

Please join us together with Julie Swan (Executive Director for General Qualifications) and Richard Garrett (Director of Policy and Strategic Relationships for General Qualifications) where we will discuss and take questions on the arrangements for this summer’s GCSE, AS and A level exams.  Ofqual is keen to hear from teachers about those arrangements as we look ahead to this summer’s exam series.
