Collaboration with the OCR

The ALT collaborates with the OCR, a leading UK awarding body that provides qualifications which engage people of all ages and abilities at school, college, in work or through part-time learning programmes. The ALT was heavily involved in the development of the subject content for new AS and A level Law. The OCR hosts an annual conference for A level law teachers in association with the ALT, and the 2016 OCR/ALT conference was held at the UK Supreme Court.
