Tutor conference 2013
On 1 February 2013 tutors, authors and examiners met at Chartered Accountants' Hall for the 2013 ICAEW tutor conference. Over 140 delegates from 32 different tutorial organisations recognised under the ICAEW Partner in Learning scheme attended the conference from around the world.
The conference focused on examiner-led workshops based on the exam setting and marking process and the assessment of ethics. During the workshops tutors marked real exam scripts from 2012 sittings and were provided with guidance from examiners as to how marks are allocated for knowledge and skills in each paper.
Tutors had direct access to the examiners throughout the day and were free to ask examiners and ICAEW staff any questions concerning the setting and marking of exams, the syllabus, learning materials and upcoming changes in the evolved ACA.
