Petition Create a Government exam board to make new language GCSEs based on census data

Currently, it is up to exam boards what language GCSEs to produce. We want the Government to create its own exam board to produce new language GCSEs based on the main languages of UK residents, using census data.

More details

Over the past decade, some communities have vastly expanded in size in the UK. Many people who have settled in the UK now have their children in school here. We believe it is vital for there to be language GCSEs for communities present in large numbers the UK. For example, whilst we have a Polish GCSE, and rightly so, the Romanian Community, which the latest Census puts at 472,000 speakers, has no such provision. It is only just that the Government brings in a mechanism to rectify this in good time.
