Early each autumn term, The Exams Office training section – Exams Training – hosts a series of events across the country developed specifically for experienced exams officers focusing upon exam changes for the new academic year and the impact upon your role and exams administration and management in your centre.

Experts from The Exams Office deliver this full day event to prepare experienced exams officers for the new academic year with a comprehensive summary of the exams-related changes from JCQ, Ofqual and the DfE. They are also available throughout the day to answer your questions.


No other organisation provides such a comprehensive summary of the exam changes for the new academic year


All courses contain a range of table-based activities to aid understanding, share good practice and network with colleagues.

All events start at 9.15am (registration from 8.45am) and finish by 4pm
