Attainment, qualifications and the Senior Phase

The Working Group recommends that SQA keep under review the suite of languages offered at certificate level in light of 1+2 implementation. (Language Learning in Scotland: A 1+2 Approach, p25)
Consideration is given to the full range of SQA language qualifications (Languages for Work Purposes units; National Courses, the Scottish Baccalaureate in Languages), allowing the school to provide opportunities for both vertical and horizontal progression. (Modern Languages Excellence Report, p16)
I want to see language learning as a very entrenched part of our education system [...] Crucially I want to see that young people have the motivation to sustain that connection [with language learning] and to sustain it over a long period of time. That’s a priority that the government will be determined to take forward.
