Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff has urged young people receiving GCSE to “follow your heart and passion” when it comes to fulfilling their educational or career path.
Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s GCSE results announcement the Sinn Féin Education Spokesperson and Chair of the Assembly Education Committee said:
“I want to wish everyone awaiting results every success.
“There is a lot of pressure on young people now a-days and I would tell them follow your heart, follow your passion.
“I anticipate once again this year there will be further improvements in literacy and numeracy, given the success of the Signature Project, which was introduced by my colleague, the then Education Minister John O’Dowd and the wider Executive.
“There is a strong argument to be made to reintroduce this scheme in the future.
“I would also like to take this opportunity congratulate the role the parents and teachers play in educating our young people.”
