"The Field Studies Council is hugely supportive of the Natural History GCSE consultation.   With so many global challenges, the Natural History GCSE gives us an opportunity to focus on the diverse world around us and how this is changing.  Engaging in this conversation now is so critical to ensure the next generation have the skills and understanding to fully embrace the world we live in." - Simon Ward, Head of Group (East) Field Studies Council (FSC)

"This consultation is a critical step in the development of a new GCSE which is sure to play an important part in a movement towards the Linnean Society’s vision of a world where nature is increasingly understood, valued and protected." - Joe Burton, Education & Public Engagement Manager, Linnean Society of London
