Commenting on the A-level results in Northern Ireland, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT – The Teachers’ Union said:
“These results demonstrate the continuing hard work and dedication of our young people and teachers in sustaining high standards of exam success.
“They are the culmination of an immense amount of effort by students and schools.
“Teachers in Northern Ireland have achieved these excellent results despite the constant threat of job loss, the burden of excessive workload, schools reorganisation and year-on-year budget cuts.
“Teachers and pupils should be congratulated for the success they have achieved.”
Justin McCamphill, NASUWT National Official Northern Ireland, said:
“Teachers are doing their utmost to ensure that all young people gain the skills and opportunities they need to realise their full potential.
“These results demonstrate they are doing that and they are helping their students maintain such a high performance in their exams.”
