National Exams Officer Conferences


The Exams Office is the only organisation funding free-to-attend* National Exams Officer Conferences. These were previously provided by the Department for Education. 


The Exams Office conferences are the largest and most significant events relating to examination administration and management for exams officers during the academic year. Each conference is supported by the major awarding bodies, JCQ and a range of key exams-related stakeholders.
