Welsh Literature GCSE
GCSE Welsh Literature is a qualification that encourages candidates to develop their interest and enthusiasm in Welsh literature and to enable them to contribute to a bilingual society of the twenty first century. The aim is to develop candidates' confidence to respond analytically and personally to literature and contemporary multimedia cultural materials in order to gain an appreciation of Wales' cultural heritage.
Accredited Specifications and Specimen Assessment Materials for Wales (for first teaching from 2015) are now available.
Our dedicated Educational Resources team are working in close consultation with teachers and sector leads to produce a range of exciting, diverse and engaging material to support our new GCSE Welsh Literature qualification.
