Reform of the National Curriculum in England
At a meeting of associations held on 9 April 2013 a clear consensus emerged that if the Government's proposals were implemented as they stand it would be detrimental forEnglish education. This is a curriculum appropriate for the past and not for the present or the future. It is not a curriculum that our children deserve.
Subsequently the Council responded to the Government consultation that closed on 8 August 2013. The response can be downloaded by following the link under 'Latest News' (top right).
The Association for Achievement and Improvement through Assessment (AAIA)
The main aim of AAIA is to secure effective assessment practice within the educational community and to further the educational practice and professional development of members. This is achieved through the activities of the regional and working groups, through an annual conference and through the website (www.aaia.org.uk) and publications. All of these provide a forum for the exchange of views, information, and experience related to all aspects of assessment.
Furthermore AAIA provides a professional response to issues that may influence assessment as part of learning and teaching through formal and informal meetings with representatives of the DCSF, QCA, NAA, CIEA, OfQUAL and other appropriate national organisations or departments. AAIA regularly responds to consultation documents and where possible representatives attend key seminars and conferences that have a bearing on assessment, learning and teaching.
