"We're surprised and concerned to hear the Chief Exec is leaving his position, after only 11 months in post.

"With the new Curriculum about to be announced, this is a critical time for education - and exams - in Wales.  Our children and young people, together with education professionals, will want to know that everything is being done to ensure there is no disruption. We look forward to working with the next Chief Exec."
