Liberal Democrats Four years ago, I became Wales’ Education Minister.

John, four years ago, I became Wales’ Education Minister.

It wasn’t an easy decision to accept the position.

I’d spent the last decade holding the Labour Government to account - nowhere
more so than on education where Wales had continued to drop in international

But, as liberals, we have always believed that education is the key to
ensuring everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their potential. This was our
opportunity to make a difference – so Welsh party members voted in favour for
me to join the government.

We have come a long way since then.

We have reduced the attainment gap, giving more support to learners from
disadvantaged backgrounds.

Our improved examination results and international performance means that
there is a new respect for Wales and a new confidence at home.

We led the way in guaranteeing that children who receive free school meals
continue to have them provided over school holidays.

And yesterday, we have announced that this year’s GCSE and A-Level students
will be graded based on classroom assessments, rather than having to sit exams
in the middle of a global pandemic. This step, which was recommended by
independent experts, puts an end to exam-related uncertainty and worry for
students and parents across Wales.

That’s the difference that having Liberal Democrats in power can make John.

I'm proud to be one of the many elected Liberal Democrats. Across councils
and Parliaments in the UK, we are making a difference.

Best wishes,

Kirsty Williams
Welsh Minister for Education
Liberal Democrats
