Hi again everyone marking this year. Like you all who have posted thus far, limited information received. However, given that we (in our pack) have to complete a booklet to return to our supervisor (TL) on 10th May, as of today, 5th, I have no idea who that is. Thus I have just phoned the Helpline (for which there was a quick response - and I was so pleased that someone was there to assist and advise) to seek further clarification. Last year I did not learn who my TL was until I turned up for the training meeting, albeit I did appreciate that Edexcel had only stepped in at the last minute to pick up the pieces caused by the rapid exit of ETS. I was told that TL info will be sent out tomorrow - she thinks - and thus to expect Friday, Saturday - or possibly Monday (which is the 10th, the day we should be posting our first offerings/expectations.) But am also bringing to this thread a further query, given our new contracts - with gagging order placed upon us from posting in forums (which clearly means the TES ones, that we have used to support each other for the past two years - with many markers needing such, due to the shortfall or absence of their TL to provide it), am interested to know where we stand posting our comments on this thread now? It does, of course, beg the question as to why we should be so gagged? To my knowledge, between the inevitable banter exchanged between posters, no marker has ever divulged any intimate details of pupils or schools in their posts, and have only ever posted details relating to their good/bad experiences regarding the admin agency involved in the required procedures. If those are all well thought out and organised, then what is the problem with us sharing such experiences? I, for one, last year in my posts, gave credit to Edexcel, as they had clearly done a much better job, at the last minute, than ETS. Thus, what are they worried about? I remain confused about that.
