GCSE subject content review consultation

In November 2019, the Department for Education announced that it was convening an expert panel to consider potential changes to the subject content for French, German and Spanish MFL GCSEs. The panel has now made its final recommendations which have been reflected in the revised subject content document

The Department for Education is now seeking your views on the changes that have been made. You can give your views by responding to the public consultation. The deadline for response is 19/05/2021.

How NCELP resources can support the revised GCSE subject content

For information about how NCELP resources could support the kind of GCSE as proposed in the revised subject content, you can review our Teacher Research Group materials for self-access professional development on the subject content consultation. This includes:

A 60-minute screencast and guided reading task that explains the purpose of the GCSE subject content document, compares the current subject content (2015) and revised 2021 subject content documentation, and draws out the implications thereof for teaching and assessment.

Comparison of the current and revised GCSE content (completed table and further analysis) pinpointing the main differences and elements of continuity.

Draft GCSE subject content and NCELP Schemes of Work outlines key features of the revised content, how NCELP resources and rationales align with those features and also details the research that underpins and supports both NCELP’s work and the GCSE subject content.
