If you are looking for ideas to keep your students engaged and motivated while schools are closed, I’ve shared some useful resources that I would use as a teacher to help my students to study independently.
Ofqual has recently published awarding grades for vocational and technical qualifications (VTQs) this summer. This includes some of our most popular qualifications, our Cambridge Nationals and Cambridge Technicals.
We will, of course, be providing more guidance in the future to support you.
Keeping up to date can feel daunting – but by taking steps early you can be confident that you will be on top of your planning and preparation for now and September 2020.
Have we missed any resources you think might be useful for teachers and students? Let us know in the comments below along with any questions you may have.
