The Classical Association is consulting on a proposal for the establishment of a new Classical Greek Qualification, which will be endorsed by the Classical Association, Classics for All and several universities.

Many schools, state and independent, (as well as other learners) are learning/teaching Greek on much reduced timetables.  We are proposing a qualification at a more achievable level than the full GCSE.
 
The focus of the qualification would be mostly or entirely language; the proposed content equates roughly to that of Greek to GCSE: Part 1.  The first examination is envisaged as taking place in summer 2022.

The results of this survey will help us to determine how we take this proposal further.  If you have anything to add/ask not covered by the survey please email: intermediategreekcert@gmail.com.

If you would like a copy of your responses please email: office@classicalassociation.org. 

Thank you from everyone on the working party for taking the time to respond.  Please return your answers by 30 November.
