NVQ business languages is still going strong in schools in the UK even though the points won’t count for school leavers at 2013. Â Many schools jumped on the Ebacc bandwagon and encouraged many pupils to take the GCSE in languages when in fact they would have enjoyed more success on the NVQ assessment based pathway. Â Some schools have now realised this was a knee jerk reaction and are reinstating the NVQ albeit for smaller groups of learners. Â We have a close partnership with OCR and are working hard to try and ensure an alternative but similar qualification to the NVQ will be made available. Â Please post your comments here if you support the continuity of this fantastic qualification.
