WJEC's response to proposed changes for A levels in England
WJEC notes the changes proposed for A levels in England by Education Minister Michael Gove.
“It is helpful that the timeline for introducing new A levels has been moved so that these will be for teaching from 2015,” said WJEC Chief Executive Gareth Pierce. “This gives all those involved more time to resolve issues influencing the development of the new qualifications, to ensure that these qualifications fully meet the needs of young people.
“We look forward to seeing further details about Mr Gove's proposals for higher education involvement. WJEC already has arrangements for involving a wide range of contributors from the HE sector in our development process for A Level qualifications."
Regarding possible changes to A levels in Wales, Gareth Pierce commented:
“WJEC looks forward to receiving information on the proposals for A levels in Wales, and to working with governments in Wales and England to maintain comparable standards for the qualifications in both countries.”
