The Exams Office’s winter and summer conferences are the only national events attended by key stakeholders including the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) and the major awarding bodies. Over 2,500 exams officers attended our 2019 Winter and Summer Conferences.

 

The Exams Office is the only organisation which offers these free-to-attend* conferences to the exams officer community

 

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 include keynote speeches, presentations and workshops from experts in the field of exams administration and management, with a focus upon guidance and good practice hints and tips.

 

Delegates can select the workshops they would like to attend via the booking form. Refreshments and buffet lunch are provided. A range of exams-related exhibitors are also in attendance.
