You can now book a place on a free launch event to find out more about our new draft GCSE qualifications in French, German and Spanish. We're running a range of face-to-face meetings around the country from April through to July, as well as some online events for those who prefer not to travel. You can see a list of the events that are available now here. We'll be putting on more events in the autumn term.
