In this webinar, OxfordAQA will take you through the process by which exam boards will ensure grades assigned to students are fair, valid and comparable. As well as explaining what they will do, they will also provide clear guidance on what schools need to do to determine grades for their students, and what evidence they can use to reach this judgement:
• What evidence can be used to determine grades?
• What assessment materials will be made available to help inform teacher judgements?
• What resources and training will be provided to ensure teacher judgements are accurate – and consistent across all schools?
• What role will the exam boards play in quality assuring grades?
• What happens if a student wants to appeal their grade?
• How will grades from this summer be perceived by academic institutions and employers?
• How grade boundaries are set
This webinar will be chaired by Colin Bell, COBIS CEO, and presented by Dale Bassett, Director of International and Curriculum Strategy at AQA.
To identify as transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming whilst studying at an international school can present a unique set of challenges, rendering the student especially vulnerable to mental ill health, poor wellbeing and disrupted learning.
In this candid and personal presentation, former Principal, Matthew Savage, shares his experience as the proud father of a gay, transgender child, and how it taught him to be a truly inclusive leader. By the end of the presentation, the audience should have:
a) Consolidated their knowledge of the key terms and concepts around gender identity and expression, sex and sexuality.
b) Developed their understanding of the wellbeing and learning risks often encountered by transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming students in international schools.
c) Begun to consider strategies to mitigate against these risks through trans-inclusive policy and practice in their schools.
d) Been inspired by the strength and courage of one transgender child who managed, in the end, to thrive, against all odds.
Students of today are a generation born during times of huge global change. 65% are likely to work in jobs that currently don't exist. They will more likely be a portfolio CV generation, changing not simply work spaces but also careers more than previous generations. In a landscape which we struggle to define, we continue to ask “what do you want to do when you leave school?”, often creating anxiety, confusion and pressure. What could it look like if we were to change the approach and question to “who do you want to become?”.
