The Department for Education, Ofqual, the awarding organisations offering these qualifications (Pearson, AQA, OCR and WJEC) and key stakeholders have been reforming the subject criteria and content to ensure that they provide a strong foundation for further academic and vocational study and prepare students for higher education.

We anticipate that the public consultation will begin in September 2014.

In the meantime, if you would like to contribute to our research and development, please email TeachingPerformingArts@pearson.com with the subject heading 'GCSE and GCE Drama 2016'.

Kind regards,


Paul Webster, Drama, Theatre Studies and Performing Arts subject advisor
