We welcome the Welsh Government’s renewed commitment to the retention of GCSEs and A levels. This provides stability for our young people and enables them to study tried and tested qualifications. They are not being used guinea pigs in some ill-thought through experiment like their colleagues across the border in England. We will need to show that these qualifications are rigorous, and that their quality is guaranteed by a regulator which is independent of government, to ensure that they have currency outside Wales.
