Shining a Light on the Path to the Future of Learning
At a time of great uncertainty, we have seen incredible acts of kindness and humbling generosity as teachers continue to support their students while coping with the health risks to themselves, pupils and their families. Workload, blended learning, assessment and mastering new technologies have made this a very demanding year all round. Here at Academy Conferences, prevented by the virus from offering face to face events we have worked with some amazing partners to build world-class platforms for blended learning.
The government has announced that assessment by examination will not go ahead this summer for GCSE and A level courses. Watch this space for how alternative arrangements will work. Schools and colleges must continue to engage as fully as possible with their courses so that students are in the best position possible, whatever arrangements are made for assessment.
