The Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification
The Welsh Baccalaureate is an exciting qualification that adds a valuable new dimension to the subjects and courses already available to 14 – 19 year old students. It combines personal development skills with existing qualifications like A Levels, NVQs and GCSEs to make one wider award that is recognised and valued by employers, universities and other Higher Education Institutions.
The Welsh Baccalaureate is valued because it helps to develop learners’ personal skills. These skills are essential if they are to do well when they leave school and start a job or go on to further education.
Over 200 centres in Wales are approved to offer the Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification to some 53,000 learners from September 2010.
"The Welsh Baccalaureate has transformed learning in the school. Students have a better attitude and really feel they gain from the personal development work and the key skills improvements. I also believe it helps them improve their grades in ‘Options’ subjects.”
Phil Davies, Head of Sixth Form, St Cyres School
