Catch up on OCR’s latest news and views in the Autumn issue of OCR’s termly magazine, Agenda.
Interested in A Level Maths? OCR is the only exam board to develop a choice of two new suites of Maths and Further Maths AS and A Levels for 2017. Our feature explains all the basics and the support on offer to help teachers move to linear qualifications.
We ask Sarah Clark, Principal of the newest UTC in Sheffield, why she likes working in education and what the greatest challenges facing colleges like her own are.
We’ve got feedback from Jo Gaisford, a teacher at a school in Kent, about teaching OCR’s new A Level Chemistry and the support available from OCR that has helped her make the transition to the new practicals. “I can hand on heart say that OCR have been the most on the ball, helpful and informative.”
There’s news about 9-1 GCSE grading, OCR’s new guide to Cambridge Technicals, plus an update on the GCSEs and AS/A Levels we are developing, alongside Maths, for first teaching in September 2017. Whether you want to teach Classical Civilisation or Design and Technology, we are looking forward to helping teachers get off to a flying start with our new qualifications.
All this, plus essentials such as CPD for GCSE English Literature, the development of Level 2 Cambridge Technicals and what’s next for Functional Skills.
