Highlights of the week ending 10 September

For many it has been back to school this week, including Members of Parliament. It’s been a busy few days in the Commons as we’ve had education questions to ministers which included several MPs questioning the fate of BTEC and Applied General qualifications, 2021 A level and GCSE grading, and plans for 2022 exams. Nick Gibb was joined by Ofqual to give evidence to the Education Select Committee on those last two points: summer results 2021 and arrangements for 2022.
