ALL GCSE Content Review 2021 Webinar 1


A presentation on the DfE and Ofqual consultations relating to the GCSE MFL Subject Content Review.

About this Event

  • ALL is holding two webinars on the GCSE content review.
  • The first one is open to everyone and will look at the proposals in the review and the questions on both the DfE and the Ofqual consultations. The second webinar will take place after the Spring break (date to be confirmed – provisionally Thursday 22nd April) and will give ALL members the opportunity to share their views, informing ALL’s response to the consultation, which closes on May 19th.
  • The ALL website has a very useful Briefing Paper on the subject


Don’t forget to join ALL or renew your membership to ensure you have access to all the great member benefits!


The presentation is based on  Helen Myers’ personal understanding of the documents.

On listening back to this unscripted webinar, I realise that there are some errors in  my verbal description of the document.  I will review this tomorrow!  Helen.
