Our next conference: Stepping Up: Online transition course for students beginning A Level RS in September 2024



    With Charlotte Vardy

    Academic Year 2024-25


    “Stepping Up” is Candle Conferences’ online transition-course, designed specially for students preparing to start or just beginning A Level Religious Studies and aiming to give them a solid foundation for success.

    Units include…

    1. Introducing A Level Religious Studies
    2. What does it mean to say “God exists”?
    3. Is murder always wrong?
    4. What is Christianity?
    5. Study Skills
    6. Writing your first essay

    Each of the six units comprises a series of short videos, accompanied by a sequence of varied and stretching activities for students to complete. The course will take no less than 6 hours to complete (probably much longer)

    Students can work through the units at their own pace and in any order. Each will receive their own login details, which provide access to the videos through a secure page of our website, as well as a .pdf transition-pack to download and fill in to support and extend their learning and provide useful evidence of what they have done. The course ends with recommendations for further reading and suitable enrichment and extension activities.

    No prior-knowledge is assumed, so the course is accessible whether or not students have taken GCSE Religious Studies.

    Presenter Charlotte Vardy combines teaching Religious Studies across the age and ability range in an local Church School with her work in planning Candle Conferences’ events & resources and presenting online courses and lecture-series like this one. With 20+ years’ experience in schools, including Senior and Middle Leadership, she has worked as an educational consultant and teacher-trainer in the UK and internationally. She has a Masters’ Degree with distinction in Philosophy from the University of London, attended the Universities of Oxford (MA Theology) and Cambridge (PGCE Secondary RS), and has written four books for students of A Level Religious Studies.
