Quality and Effectiveness Framework
The Welsh Government funds a wide range of learning programmes for young people and adults through:
- local authorities
- third sector organisations
- private organisations.
Skills that Work for Wales: A skills and employment strategy and action plan commits the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) to establishing a new Quality and Effectiveness Framework (QEF). This Framework will support continued improvements in the quality of post-16 learning.
The QEF, which has been developed in close partnership with Estyn, provider representative bodies, learners and other stakeholders, will help us to move the quality of provision to a new level. The Framework is being implemented in phases starting in autumn 2009. It will challenge all providers to continually improve their performance, whilst giving a greater degree of freedom and flexibility to those which consistently demonstrate their effectiveness.
