Petition: Keep our languages exams
Keep our languages exams – every language is an asset
According to Speak to the Future the awarding organisation OCR (Oxford Cambridge and RSA Examinations) recently announced plans to reduce its Asset Languages assessment scheme from 25 to only 5 languages (French, German, Spanish, Italian and Mandarin) from 2014. This has in part been as a result of government policy not to recognise Asset Languages as contributing towards the English Baccalaureate and therefore school performance indicators. This decision will leave many languages and language learners without accreditation in the UK.
