Rod Bristow, president of Pearson UK, has given our perspective on Ofqual’s report, Exam Board Seminars.
“We have always made clear that we believe it is essential that teachers are given support to deliver qualifications, to enable them to give guidance to their students.
“Events of the past six months have however demonstrated the risks associated with this. We have already taken strong action to ensure that the information shared through events and other channels is always appropriate. Many of our events will be online, and all will be recorded, to enable a high degree of transparency.
“These new measures are also reflected in the guidance issued by Ofqual today.”
