From September 2015 I will be assessing GCSE PE students following the Edexcel syllabus by the criteria below.
As a course director for The 'National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme', I highly recommend that students work towards achieveing their NICAS Levels. It is a fun and easy way for students to track their progress over time whilst contributing towards their GCSE attainment.
Schools that book for assessment will recieve an email from me informing them of the 'Meeting Local Needs' process. This is an easy process required by 'Edexcel' to get your scores accredited. This must be submitted before the end of October of the assessing year.
