Introducing GCSE Welsh Second Language events – questions and answers

Qualifications Wales, the Welsh Government, WJEC and the Regional Education Consortia would like to thank delegates for attending, and participating in, the ‘Introducing GCSE Welsh Second Language’ events that took place in January 2017.

Many of the matters discussed at the events are included on our Changes to GCSE Welsh Second Language website page which was shared with delegates prior to the events. 

We have also produced an overview of the common queries and observations that were raised during the events, together with the panel’s responses.  These have been grouped into four sections reflecting the nature of the discussions:

1) General queries

2) Design of new GCSE Welsh Second Language 

3) Delivering the new GCSE Welsh Second Language

4) Awarding the new qualification
