Webinar for teachers by Cambridge Assessment English, in collaboration with British Council, exclusively for Addvantage members.

We’re delighted to invite members of the Addvantage scheme to join the next webinar taking place in April. The topic is on assessment of writing at B2 to C1 levels.

The webinar will be delivered by Sarah Ellis and Elena Louicellier from the Cambridge Assessment English team. 

After each webinar we will send you an email with a certificate of attendance, useful links and a link to view the recording.


The aim of this webinar is to focus on the assessment of writing skills.  We will explore the concept of writing ability and how it is accounted for in the B2 First and C1 Advanced exams, look at the assessment criteria and other features of the mark schemes. We will discuss challenges learners may have with writing at B2 and C1 levels and see how teachers can help learners to improve their skills and prepare for the Writing paper effectively. We will also share practical ideas and resources available to help you and your students with writing.           

Presenters: Sarah Ellis and Elena Louicellier
