The Classical Association is consulting, in partnership with Classics for All, on a proposal for the establishment of an Intermediate Certificate in Classical Greek, which will be endorsed by several universities.
Many schools, state and independent, are teaching Greek on far reduced timetables, or off-timetable, and many non-school learners are studying Greek in various situations with limited contact hours. Covering the full GCSE course is often impossible in the time available. Nevertheless, schools, pupils, parents, and adult learners would all benefit from an accredited qualification so that learners have something to show for their study of Greek, even if they cannot acquire 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 (i.e. a level between the EMACT level 1 certificate and the GCSE). The first examination is envisaged as taking place in summer 2022.
