Responding to an announcement that the AQE test has been cancelled, UUP Education spokesperson, Robbie Butler MLA said:
“Now that a definitive statement has been made by AQE to cancel the test it is vital that we put absolutely every effort into constructing a fair and compassionate solution.
“I have a proposal on the table and it is deliverable. I am meeting with the Northern Ireland Teachers’ Council tomorrow to discuss this further. I have written to all parties and the Minister too and I call on those who have not yet responded to get on board with finding a way through.”
