    Getting you and your pupils ready for the GCSE Citizenship Studies in 2018

    This course will help teachers prepare for the new GCSE Citizenship Studies specifications (AQA, Edexcel and OCR), which are being examined for the first time in 2018.

    Consider assessment approaches, moderation, marking and exam preparation and share the challenges you face. Understand the background and commonality and differences between the three specifications. Sessions will involve group work, marking exercises, presentations and Q&A time.

    We have run two successful trainings in London. 

    "Feel much more reassured and confident about preparing my year 11s for this year's exams. Excellent tips and resources." Teacher, January 2018

    "The course has cleared up several issues for me regarding assessment objectives, specification coverage and marking. Extremely useful - thank you." Teacher, January 2018

    Contact us to let us know where you are based and we will look at whether we can run a course near you.

    Look at: What is the nature of the new style assessment? What is an Investigation and Action Project? How do students answer the questions?

    Discuss and share challenges and questions:

  • Dissect the problems you face in teaching the new specifications
  • How to ensure pupils can make sense of the questions and activities in the specifications
  • Moderating the paper
  • Understanding the mark scheme
  • Share suggestions for helping students revise
  • Course Tutor: Michael Mitchell is a former senior examiner for Citizenship Studies. He was also a PGCE Secondary Citizenship course leader and has authored numerous books on Citizenship education.

    We provide professional development, training and tailored programmes of school based CPD. We also work with teachers on ACT Council to provide peer to peer support.
