The St Giles’ Centre is making available a series of webinars designed to provide online targeted support for learners in Wrexham. Details about this provision and access to the webinars can be found here.
Religious Studies (GCSE, AS /A-level)
It is a challenging time for both learners and teachers preparing for GCSE and AS/A-level Religious Studies assessments in 2021, as the impact of Covid-19 on examination practices is being felt for a second year running.
In order to support learners and teachers in Wrexham at this difficult time, the St Giles’ Centre has asked experienced educator and coach, Dr Greg Barker, to create a series of webinars for GCSE Religious Studies and AS/A-level Religious Studies (WJEC). The timing of the webinars is being informed by relevant WJEC announcements (see WJEC).
