The PSA’s Heads of Department Conference included a session to discuss the ongoing A-level reforms to 50 Heads of Department from around the UK.
The PSA invited the Department for Education’s Chief Analyst, Professor Tim Leunig, and Head of Politics at Manchester Grammar School, Richard Kelly, to outline the current situation given the critical importance of this issue.
The PSA’s Programme Development Officer, James Ludley, also updated HoDs on the role the PSA has been playing to help facilitate dialogue with the main awarding bodies around new course content and also to champion the subject to Government and Ofqual. This includes convening a meeting of the awarding bodies in London on 30th January, 2015 – see below for full details about attending.
