Theme: GCSE MFL Subject Content Consultations March 2021
Background: In November 2019, the Department for Education (DfE) announced the appointment of an independent panel of experts to review the subject content for GCSEs in modern foreign languages (MFL), in French, German and Spanish. Their aim was to recommend changes to ensure the content continues to be rigorous as well as supporting high-quality teaching. Consultation on their proposals has been delayed by the pandemic until now.
Key messages: There are two consultations live until 19 May 2021: DfE is consulting on the proposals for content;
OFQUAL is consulting on ensuing arrangements for the examinations themselves
Both consultations are detailed; this Briefing extracts some key points only.
