Bu gger. Just found out today that I have to teach this **** from September with year 10, 1 lesson a week 40 mins. I have some questions .... i) The pilot appears to be finishing in early June. Does this mean that the specification is not fixed yet and may change? Looking at the AQA site, it seems to be suggesting that their specification has been accredited? (I won't ask what the point of a pilot is, if the specifications are already fixed, assuming that is the case!) ii) Am I right to think that there is 1 specification for the course? OCR and AQA's look the same? iii) My remit, after a little chat with the Head this morning, is to get them to pass asap. He "isn't interested in them learning anything" - direct quote. As soon as they pass ICT, they will move on to do extra maths and English. Any opinions about what the easist exam board is for functional friggin skills? iv) Is it too early to recommend resources, that allow for minimum planning time / maximum teaching to the test? 40 mins a week isn't long and the pupils I have are the very weak ones, who are doing the Diploma. Any advice?
