Languages Qualifications

Why AQA Languages?

Languages are hugely rewarding in the classroom, enabling progression to further study or employment. Our range of languages specifications are designed for students of all abilities, from FCSE and GCSE on to AS and A-level.

We talk to teachers when we design our qualifications to make sure we're providing the right support.

We provide a full range of support, from digital resources to extensive access to our dedicated team of subject experts.
