The IAC are looking for students to feed into their work on reviewing assessment and qualifications in England.
The Independent Assessment Commission (IAC) is a group that has been founded to review assessment and qualifications for 14-19 year olds in England. The IAC brings together academics, parents and students as well as the National Education Union, Chartered College of Teaching, the EDGE Foundation and the CBI.
You can find out more about them and what they are doing here!
“It’s time for a qualifications system that forms part of a new ERA of Equitable, Reliable Assessment - encouraging all young people to want to learn throughout their personal and professional lives.”
They are currently gathering opinions from anyone who has an interest in this area. They want to hear what people think works, and what could be improved, when it comes to assessment and qualifications in England."
The IAC are looking to make sure they have representative student voice during this process and are looking to bring an online focus group or two together to really understand the pain points students face.
Have your say and ensure as many students’ voices are heard as possible. You can let them know you're interested here.
I think this is a really cool opportunity to make sure the education sector hears from real students, of any ages, and I'd really recommend applying if you feel like you've got something to say!
Please note that if you're under 16 and want to get involved then you will need parental consent - check the link for all the details.
