Gavin Williamson – 2021 Comments on Qualifications

The comments made by Gavin Williamson, the Secretary of State for Education, on 14 July 2021.

As we recover from the pandemic, there can be no room in our education system for second rate qualifications.

Great qualifications are essential to helping everyone – no matter their age or background – to get good jobs and realise their ambitions.

These reforms will simplify and streamline the current system, ensuring that whatever qualification a young person or an adult chooses they can be confident that it will be high-quality and will lead to good outcomes.
