Catherine Witter, AQA

Senior Advice Manager in Practical Sciences
Devas Street, Manchester
My role involves leading the AQA team responsible for advising UK schools on best practice for Science practical work at both GCSE and A-level. During my twenty year teaching career, I taught all three Sciences, was Head of Faculty for Science and held whole-school responsibility for aspects of teaching and learning. I have a passion for my subject – in particular the practical application of science – and have lead training courses throughout the UK supporting teachers to develop their planning for, direct assessment of and tracking of practical skills and competencies. I am responsible for all AQA A-level monitoring of practical skills in schools and colleges and am always very keen to support teachers to prepare for their visit to maximum effect.
