The Education and Training Inspectorate
The Chief Inspector pays tribute to all teachers and learners for their enthusiasm, continued efforts and tireless dedication throughout another year of challenging circumstances arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, to ensure that each young person achieves good educational outcomes.
Acknowledging that returning to public examinations is undoubtedly stressful, the Chief Inspector said: “Young people have experienced significant disruption in their education over the last three years, so it is very encouraging to hear how they have coped so admirably with the challenges. They have achieved deservedly great exam results that enable them to progress further in their education or to employment.”
“Their individual and collective achievements are evidence of the immense resilience and fortitude of young people, families, and school staff in coping with unprecedented challenges through a period of uncertainty. This was a period where innovation, adaptability and tenacity have been needed in abundance by both learners and teachers.”
“I would like to commend the staff in our schools and colleges for their unstinting levels of commitment to their students in the planning and preparation for the return to public examinations.”
“Congratulations to all learners and teachers on behalf of all at ETI. Each young person should be very proud of their achievements and we wish them every success as they embark on their chosen pathway.”
