Driving Educational Transformation


We work across the early years, primary and secondary phases of education.

This includes policy and strategy projects, typically working with the government on the early phases of educational reform programmes, through to delivering services directly to schools – for example, national examination services, and rollout of new curricula including training and school support. Our team includes leading experts in school education and assessment, and we have the capability and reach to deploy large teams to school projects in short timescales.

AQA Global Assessment Services

As part of AQA, one of the UK’s leading exam boards, we have strength in depth in:

  • Assessment design and development: for both high-stakes qualifications and for formative and diagnostic assessment. We provide trusted assessments for national government programmes from early years through to university entrance.
  • Assessment delivery, marking and certification: we deliver assessments onscreen and on paper: in AQA we have one of the world’s largest scanning and image capture facilities, and we provide marking, moderation, awarding, and quality assurance for assessment.
  • Curriculum, qualification and standards: we work with clients to design and deliver innovative 21st Century curricula, and support rollout with resources, teacher education and evaluation.
  • Technology – we are pioneers in the effective use of technology to support assessment and learning.

GradeMaker chose to work with AlphaPlus because they are recognised experts in the field of exam authoring and in good practice in assessment – skills aligned to our leading exam authoring online solution, GradeMaker Pro.

Working together with Alpha Plus has allowed us to widen our offering to clients and help drive improvements in all areas of exam authoring. AlphaPlus have impressed us with their professionalism and expert knowledge, and their team are always willing to go beyond the brief to help our clients.
