Hi I am hoping that someone out there can help me, I moved to a new school in January to advance to HOD. Amongst several challenges I have inherited I have a year 11 GCSE group who have been working towards the AQA GCSE unfortunately I only have experience with Edexcel. From what I can find there has been very little in the way of evidence recorded for this group and it looks like I am going to have to cram two practical assessments in as well as prepare them for the exam, the moderator is due in March. The school has encountered a few problems over recent years and came out of special measures last year. Although everyone is supportive and is really pushing to improve standards within the school my department is in a bit of a mess. I am the third HOD in 2 years and the only other member of staff in my department is an expressive arts NQT who splits her time across the arts. Any advice/help/support that can be offered would be gratefully accepted.
