As an NQT in English, I'm really chuffed to have just got my first term under my belt. I LOVE the job, and could quite happily do the teaching bit til the cows come home. My only problem is that I get really stuck with marking GCSE coursework and Mocks. My HOD is very supportive, and he's moderated some of mine, and vice versa. I don't want to keep going to him, asking if pieces of coursework look like a C or a B to him. Basically, I want to know, is there a course I could go on that guides NQT's through the assessment process of GCSE? Our school is with WJEC, and I know they offer a course as an intro to the new spec, which my HOD went on. Any advice gratefully received.
