    Is anyone teaching this new spec? It got approved very late on and Pearson still has very little in the way of resources. I feel like I'm getting to the point where the kids need to begin working on Task one for Component one but I have no idea how long they should have to complete it or the sort of standard they are expecting.

    I was in contact with Pearson at the end of last week about training and they have nothing planned until sometime in 2018. For a course starting Sept 2017 this is worse than useless. The FE & Vocational link has a £100 book that is 'not yet available'. They offered in-school training at £850 per day or £650 per half day (2 1/2 hours). Can't think what resources they might bring along. Very frustrating.

    I would really appreciate being able to email you about this as I am the only media teacher in a school in my first year of teaching, so any help would be enormously appreciated

    I have started teaching this in Sept, does anyone have any exemplar work for component 1 other than that from the exam board? Also do you know if a new scenario for each component comes out each year and if it does when? Thanks

    I would join the Facebook group listed above, I have done and it has been useful. I'm planning to get the Pearson £100 official teaching pack too to get started.

    I think the fact that you're replying to a year old post and I am replying to you three weeks later tells you all you need to know about how active this forum is.
