PARLIAMENTARY PRESSURE SECURES COMMUNITY LANGUAGES

The Government has announced that community languages such as Punjabi, Polish and Gujarati will be protected so students can continue to gain qualifications in them, after exam boards announced that they will be discontinued.

Fiona Mactaggart, MP for Slough who has campaigned for the qualifications to remain, commented "I have campaigned since these languages were first under threat in March speaking in House of Commons, writing to minsters and pressing the exam boards. I am glad that ministers have intervened but am concerned that this action is not yet a guarantee that students will be able to achieve qualifications in important languages like Polish and Punjabi and I promise I will keep working to deliver that.”

The Government state that “Further announcements about the proposed approach will be made later in the year.”
