NEA Moderating Together (Ipswich)

NEA Moderating Together 2019

Food Teachers Centre Community is running twilight meetings around the country throughout March to support the Marking and Moderation of the NEA 2019 tasks. This covers ALL GCSE BOARDS.

This is a community style meeting, which is less formal and more self-help than our other training days or face to face events.  The Food Teachers Centre Associate team try to attend as many as possible, but we cannot attend them all.  To ensure that people get the most effective help we can provide, we send the host video presentations and activities to use in the meeting.  We know that this is great for your school results, your own CPD and networking, so we hope that you will join us.

The session cover ALL BOARDS – AQA, EDUQAS and OCR, so you should be able to work in a group with others who are doing the same board as you.  However, for boards that have small uptake (such as OCR) we cannot guarantee this, as people drop out even if they are on the guest list when you enquire.  But in 100 meetings last year, all but 3 meetings had other teachers to work with from the same board.

We ask for a minimum donation of £20 to help us cover the costs of venues, emailing and setting up the events, plus the cost of financial management and accountancy.   Please enter £20 when booking, and ensure that you do a separate booking for each person coming.  The ticket must be in the name of the person attending and must match the ID that you will need to bring for registration at the school due to Safeguarding.

Maximum numbers apply to each venue, so be sure to book promptly to get a place, or add your name to the waiting list.
