Modern Languages (QCF)
From September 2012, WJEC is offering a suite of QCF qualifications in six languages:
They are available at Entry 3, Level 1 and Level 2. Each unit is equivalent to either one credit (10 learning hours) or two credits (20 learning hours). One or two credits are required for each Award.
The units cover five themes:
- Communicating Personal Information
- Social Activities
- Organising and Planning
- Giving and Receiving Information and Instructions
- Education and Employment
Each theme may have either a social or work context.
QCF Language Tasks
Please note the sample tasks provide examples of the type of activities suitable for gathering assessment evidence for the QCF language units.
Please note the tasks DO NOT necessarily meet all the assessment criteria listed in the specification. It is important that all tutors/teachers are familiar with the assessment criteria in the specification and ensure that their students have provided enough evidence to demonstrate competence of all the requirements appropriate to the level.
How do WJEC’s QCF Qualifications in Modern Languages fit into the curriculum?
These qualifications provide learners with opportunities to mix and match themes and levels in accordance with individual learning needs. They also provide a platform for progression to other language qualifications.
They may be used to cover the 20-hour language requirement of the Welsh Baccalaureate Diploma at Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced Levels.
