How and when is my child assessed?

Students will sit one exam paper in January of Year 11 that test the knowledge and skills associated with Unit 1. All other units are assessed by students providing a portfolio of evidence that addresses tasks laid out in a series of Assignments. This evidence is assessed in school and moderated by the exam board.

How to support your child in Travel & Tourism:

It is vital that all students stay up to date and meet deadlines and regular contact will be used if students are at risk of falling behind. The content of Unit 1 will be a key focus for homework and on-going revision. The work that we complete in class will form the best revision guide for students and they should be revisiting concepts throughout the course to prepare effectively for their exam.
