National Conferences – Winter & Summer Exams Officer Conferences


The Exams Office is the only organisation funding free-to-attend* National Exams Officer Conferences


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.

Conference content is tailored specifically to meet the needs of exams officers and supporting our members in their everyday role. This includes national networking opportunities, high quality, experienced speakers, interactive workshops, the latest awarding body/JCQ information to prepare exams officers for the summer exam series and beyond, providing practical advice, hints and tips.

The conferences provide presentations and workshops. Delegates can choose the workshops they would like to attend. Refreshments and buffet lunch are provided. A range of exams-related exhibitors are also in attendance.


The focus of the Winter conferences is to prepare Exams Officers for the summer exams series, whilst the Summer conferences help Exams Officers to plan and prepare for the new academic year


Members of The Exams Office can attend one of the Winter conferences (held at 5 locations across England) and the Summer conference (held in London and Leeds) free of charge* as part of their membership.


*One free place per member centre is available on a first come, first served basis. Please note that only those with an up-to-date paid membership with The Exams Office at the time of booking and at the time of the event will be eligible for a free place. Booking windows will close once all places are taken.

Additional places and non-members places may be acquired, if capacity allows, for £175.00 (+VAT) per place
