Since 2017, exam reforms have resulted in various challenges for students and teachers alike. The upcoming Westminster Insight forum on school exam reform will feature contributions from education providers, third sector organisations and governmental bodies on how to navigate the challenges presented by exam reform to deliver outstanding outcomes for students, support staff and student wellbeing and drive school performance. 

This half-day forum will cover a variety of points surrounding the impact of GCSE and A Level reform, how to successfully navigate T Levels, the adoption of whole-school approaches to support the wellbeing of students and teachers as well as ways to identify priority students to protect vulnerable learners.

Tim Oates, Director of Assessment Research and Development, and member of the Ofsted Curriculum Advisory Group, will be delivering the first keynote speech titled Reviewing GCSE and A Level reforms to evaluate outcomes and determine next steps. Throughout the address Tim will cover a variety of topics including how students have been impacted two years into reform, identifying the drivers of exam reform to clarify the proposed future direction of post-16 education in the UK as well as exploring the value of IGCSEs and GCSEs to evaluate the impact of reforms for public and private education providers. The session will then finish with a Q&A.
