We've introduced a new Subject Advisor service to support our performing arts and drama qualifications. Led by the new Subject Advisor, Paul Webster, this service is designed to help solve your queries about our performing arts and drama qualifications and provide a means of sharing ideas, information and concerns.
Central to the service is our online Drama Community Forum which provides you with an opportunity to speak to other teachers, raise concerns and ask advice. Whether you have concerns about new specifications and assessment, or you want to know what books and resources to use to support your teaching, you can use our Drama Community Forum as a means to find out more. You can also read documents and use links that Paul Webster has posted.
If you are an existing Edexcel centre, you can use the site and the materials posted on it to help with your planning and teaching of our current business qualifications. You can also provide us with feedback as to how we can improve our qualifications, our support and our services.
