4th Cambridge Assessment Conference – registration now open
The 4th Cambridge Assessment Conference will take place on 19th October 2009 at Robinson College, Cambridge. The theme of the conference is ‘Issues of control and innovation: the role of the state in assessment systems’
Public policy experts, educationalists and assessment specialists will debate the role of the state in assessment systems at the 4th Cambridge Assessment Conference. This is a timely topic as a Bill to deliver Ofqual, a new regulator of qualifications, has been going through UK Parliament.
The conference will make a major contribution to thinking in the area. Keynote speakers include Professor Alison Wolf, Sir Roy Griffiths Professor of Public Sector Management, King’s College London, and Professor Robin Alexander, Fellow of Wolfson College at the University of Cambridge. Experts including: Professor Mary James, Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge; Isabel Nisbet, Ofqual; and Dr John Allan, SQA; will lead a series of seminars on the day.
Leaders from many areas within education are invited to attend, including senior managers from schools, colleges and universities, as well as those working for national and local education bodies, professional organisations, political parties, the media, awarding bodies and employers’ organisations.
The conference fee of £180 includes lunch, refreshments and access to keynote and seminar sessions. An ‘early bird’ rate of £150 applies to bookings received before 31st July 2009.
