Exams Training, in conjunction with OCR, deliver two courses during each academic year which are designed specifically for new exams officers – Actions for Autumn and Spring into Summer.
New exams officers are strongly encouraged to attend both courses.
These are suitable for new exams officers, exams assistants or those requiring a ‘refresher course’. The primary focus of this training is General Qualifications (GCSE/GCE), although the good practice, hints and tips apply to all qualifications.
These courses provide a step-by-guide to the key tasks which you will need to undertake in your new role.
All courses contain a range of table-based activities to aid understanding, share good practice and network with colleagues.
The experts who launched and run The Exams Office, in conjunction with OCR Customer Support staff, are responsible for course content and delivery. They have experience as exams officers, members of SLT, devising and delivering DfE exams policies and initiatives, leading government exams support field teams, and creating good practice exam guides which are followed by more than 4400 schools/colleges. The team also consists of awarding body personnel and ex-JCQ inspectors. They will be available throughout the day to answer your questions.
All events start at 09:00 (registration from 08:30) and finish by 16:00
