Cambridge Assessment International Education
剑桥大学国际考评部于2019年12月6-7日在广州举办了东亚区首次线下剑桥考务培训。来自东亚地区86所学校的115名Exams Officer (EO)参加了培训。我们邀请了剑桥国际EO培训协调员Amy Cook，为东亚区的EO们详细讲解了剑桥考务的各个环节以及剑桥为EO提供的资源与培训支持。
EO在工作中经常遇到各种各样的‘疑难杂症’和“突发”，而peer support也许是EO最常用到的求助方式之一。这次的活动中我们也安排了分享环节，来自深圳万科梅沙书院的Weiwei Zheng老师、来自ULC剑桥国际高中的Qiwen Tang老师和来自黄冈中学广州学校的Shumin Liu老师分享了自己管理剑桥考试的经验。我们的承办学校ULC剑桥国际高中还带领参训老师参观并介绍了学校的试卷保密室。在此特别感谢培训承办学校ULC剑桥国际高中、三位分享嘉宾及其学校的大力支持。
Cambridge International held its first ever face-to-face training events for Cambridge exams officers from the East Asia region last month. Demand was so high that we decided to run the training sessions twice on consecutive days.
In total 115 exams officers from 86 schools across East Asia joined us for the training in a warm and sunlit Guangzhou in China on 6 to 7 December 2019. Amy Cook, Cambridge International’s Training Coordinator for Exams Officers, talked in detail about the six phases of the Cambridge Exams Cycle, and our support for exams officers.
The exams officer role is of paramount importance for a Cambridge school. Cambridge exams would not be possible without exams officers and their work is very intricate.
Delegates explored lots of key issues and how to deal with the unexpected, such as:
It is not unusual for exams officers to find themselves in all sorts of emergencies, and peer support can be one of the most useful ways to get help. In the training, three exams officers – Weiwei Zheng from Vanke Meisha Academy, Qiwen Tang from ULink College Guangzhou, and Shumin Liu from Huanggang Middle School Guangzhou Branch – shared their experiences of managing Cambridge exams. ULink College Guangzhou, our host school, also kindly offered delegates an informative tour of their security storage for exams materials. We would like to express our immense thanks for the generous support of ULink College Guangzhou, and the three exams officers and their respective schools.
We have also gained a deeper understanding of the day-to-day work of exams officers through the training, and so would like to give our sincere accolades to them. Their hard work is indispensable to students’ achieving their exam results and fulfilling their dreams.
We are pleased to have received positive feedback from the delegates. Doreen from YK PAO School in Shanghai said: 'This face-to-face training was amazing! There was a true sense of community and belonging.' It is such encouragement that keeps us striding forward to deliver better support for Cambridge schools.
So the key question is, when will the next Cambridge exams officer training take place? We plan to continue to hold face-to-face training events for exams officers this year and will notify all exams officers from the East Asia region in due course.
