The NASUWT comments on a report by the Local Government Association warning of a £1bn shortfall in funding for new school places
“This year’s GCSE exam entrants have had to cope with a raft of rushed through and ill-conceived changes to the qualifications system and so today’s results are especially commendable. Congratulations must go to teachers and pupils for navigating through this difficult period of upheaval."
“Pupils and teachers are to be congratulated on their success which, as always, is the culmination of an immense amount of hard work and effort."
“Once again Northern Ireland schools have bucked the trend elsewhere in the UK. Performance across the board has risen and this is a testament to the high standards being achieved in our schools."

“The NASUWT is a member of the Working Group and has been arguing strongly for the urgent provision of high-quality resources and training for teachers as they contend with further implementation of qualifications reform.
“It is clear that standards have been maintained across the board and credit for that must go to teachers who have, yet again, pulled out all the stops to ensure that young people are supported to achieve their best."
“Teachers in Northern Ireland have achieved these results despite the fact that they continue to face serious challenges to their working conditions."
“Congratulations must go to young people and their teachers who have worked so hard to deliver yet another excellent set of results."
“The fact is that tomorrow’s results will have been achieved despite the Government’s reforms, not because of them.”
