Why attend?

The 2022 exam series will bring challenges, pressures and a certain amount of uncertainty, however one thing that will remain the same, from past exams, is the level of support, advice and guidance you will need to give your students in order to aim, and achieve, the highest possible grades.

Written and delivered by leading AQA GCSE PE specialist, Ross Howitt, this online workshop will explore a series of teaching strategies, creative techniques and 'quick wins' that you can put in place immediately to support, challenge and guide them.

  • Gain a clear, focused blueprint to boost your students with low prior attainment up towards the 4-6 grade category and the upper end students towards the 7-9 category
  • Receive a wealth of ideas and a breadth of strategies to specifically target students who have the ability to attain a higher grade
  • Focus on how you can keep the NEA Part 3 task specific and differentiated so that different abilities can achieve their potential
