New Resources Available
The interactive resource for the new WJEC GCSE 2016 Specification is currently with our development team and is undergoing final checks before being published.
In the meantime we have made the 'skeleton' of this interactive resource available to centres on our related documents page. This resource is titled, 'GCSE PE Resource (New 2016 Spec)' and includes all of the information that will be in the interactive resource as well as numerous word documents. This ensures that centres are not missing out on the information available.
In addition to this, Welsh Government have designed a resource to support practitioners with the delivery of the new biomechanical principles and movement analysis content in the new WJEC physical education specifications, from GCSE through to GCE AS/A level. You can find this resource via the link below.
