SOUTH Kent Col­lege ex­ams ex­pert, Ali­son Co­ley, is the au­thor of new guide­lines be­ing cir­cu­lated for staff in schools and colleges across the coun­try.

The Qual­i­fi­ca­tions and Cur­ricu­lum De­vel­op­ment Agency (QCDA) has just pub­lished the Func­tional Skills Tool­kit, and one of the guide­lines in it was writ­ten by Mrs Co­ley, who has worked for South Kent Col­lege for nearly 25 years, but has spe­cialised in ex­ams since 2001.

South Kent Col­lege prin­ci­pal Mon­ica Box said: “This shows how our busi­ness sup­port staff can, and do, lead the way in de­vel­op­ing sys­tems and pro­ce­dures that sup­port ef­fec­tive ad­min­is­tra­tion of learn­ing.”

Func­tional Skills are con­sid- ered es­sen­tial el­e­ments to equip stu­dents for work and life and con­sist of English, Maths and ICT. They re­place ‘key skills’ from Septem­ber 2010.

Mrs Co­ley’s guide­lines help staff make sure stu­dents are en­tered for ex­ams on time.
