The Education Secretary, Michael Gove, has been forced into a U-turn on his flagship plan to scrap GCSEs and replace them with a new English Baccalaureate.
Speaking to ITV Daybreak, Shadow Education Secretary Stephen Twigg said this was a "humiliating climbdown" for the coalition.
He said he hoped the GCSE system would be revisited, but with an emphasis on vocational education, the Labour party support plans for a 'technical Baccalaureate'.
Mr Twigg added that he wanted to "work with the Government to get a better set of exams for the future."
