Qualifications and their regulation
These pages contain information about the different types of qualifications which are available in Wales.
These qualifications may be taken by learners in schools, colleges, the workplace, community settings, prisons, residential settings or elsewhere.
The Regulation of Qualifications pages provide information about the way in which the Welsh Government currently regulates qualifications. Regulation involves:
- ensuring that awarding organisations are suitable to offer qualifications
- that qualifications are fit for purpose
- and that standards are maintained over time.
These regulatory processes mirror those of our fellow regulators in England (Ofqual) and Northern Ireland (CCEA). More information on this can be found in the relevant sections available on the left hand side.
These pages also include additional information, such as:
- qualifications available through the medium of Welsh or bilingually
- access to qualifications
- how qualifications compare and can be used in different UK nations
- qualifications frameworks.
