DfE launches support for schools and colleges
30 September 2020
The Department for Education is providing support for schools and colleges to run autumn exams.
The DfE Exam Support Service is an extensive support package to help schools and colleges with essential additional costs associated with running exams in the autumn, including fees charged by awarding organisations, sites and invigilation.
Schools and colleges can book alternative sites and invigilators where required through approved suppliers.
Schools and colleges will also be able to claim funding through the service for alternative sites, and for autumn exam fees and invigilation costs if these exceed any savings made in the summer, following cancellation of summer exams.
The claims process will launch later in the autumn term, alongside guidance on how to make claims. Further guidance on how to use the service can be found on the government website.
