Today (3rd November) the Department for Education and Ofqual published public consultations on revised subject content for new GCSEs and A levels which will be taught from 2017, including AS and A Level Politics.

Details of the DfE's consultation on subject content and how to respond to consultation are here.

Ofqual are consulting in parallel on proposals for assessment arrangements in these subjects. These documents can be viewed here.

Please do take the opportunity to share your views and encourage others to do so.

The deadline for submissions is 15th December.

To help us gain an informed overview of members' views we would be very grateful if you could also share your submissions with us.

Please send these directly to james.ludley@psa.ac.uk

Additionally, work has recently been undertaken by our web developers to create an online discussion forum for teacher members and academics alike to participate in a discussion about the shape the new A-level curriculum should take.

We hope that the forum functionality will be a useful tool for teachers to share ideas and generating discussion amongst our ever growing teachers' network.

You can access and add to the current forum discussions online here.
