    Hi all
    Recently I went to a 'Feedback' meeting for GCSE Drama (AQA) While there another teacher told me they were having an AQA examiner in to do a workshop on the written paper with the pupils. I rang AQA who said they don't run anything like this so I suspect it is being done privately...does anyone know of this, for a few years we had an English Chief Examiner who travelled the country giving workshops for the pupils on the language paper and I was hoping that the same might be available for GCSE Drama.
    If anyone knows I would love to know!
    Thanks

    Who is the Chief Examiner? Can you find out and ask them directly? They would possibly be the best person to run such a workshop.
     
  4. AQA will send out an examiner to run a feedback session/ discuss the examination for a fee of about £600
    You could advertise this to other centre and invite them for a fee to help cover costs. The number of candidates changes the costs.

    This is run by a separate department, I don't have th info with me at the moment.

    Hi thanks for that info....is this only aimed at teachers or for candidates. I have already been to the feedback meeting if it is only for teachers.
