Attainment, qualifications and the Senior Phase

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.
(Interview with Deputy First Minister, February 2017)
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)
