Commenting on the A-level results, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT - The Teachers’ Union, said:

“These excellent results have been achieved by the hard work and commitment of students and their teachers, despite the ongoing turbulence in post 16 education caused by curriculum changes and year on year cuts,

“Whilst celebrating today’s achievements, it is critical to remember that without action by politicians and a real commitment to sustained investment in their future  these young people  and all those who struggle to overcome the barriers of poverty and disadvantage will never have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

“The young people and their teachers have delivered. It’s now time for the politicians to do the same.”

Justin McCamphill, NASUWT Northern Ireland National Official said:

“Young people in Northern Ireland face some of the biggest challenges in terms of youth unemployment and participation in further and higher education.

“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.”
