Commenting on the Department for Education and Ofqual's announcement of arrangements of VTQ assessments from September 2021, Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of the NASUWT – The Teachers’ Union, said:

“Yet again, it is disappointing to receive belated confirmation, in the middle of the summer holidays, that exams for VTQ students will proceed in as little as four weeks’ time. This is yet another example of a persistent pattern of delayed announcements, last-minute changes and schools and colleges being left in the dark. Ministers need to recognise that their actions are only serving to exacerbate the unprecedented pressures on teachers and students. 

It is bewildering that the government has still not learned the critical lesson that failing to plan can be a recipe for failure. After the disruption of the last 18 months, students and teachers deserve better."
