Regulation of Qualifications
These Regulation of Qualifications pages provide information about the way in which we regulate qualifications in Wales.
We regulate general and vocational qualifications in Wales. To do this we:
- Recognise and monitor awarding organisations to make sure they operate fairly and consistently, and follow our regulations. We often do this jointly with the regulators in England (Ofqual) and Northern Ireland Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA);
- Work with awarding organisations to maintain standards in qualifications and assessments and to ensure that the public has confidence in the qualifications system;
- Develop qualifications frameworks;
- Support the provision of Welsh medium qualifications;
- Ensure access for candidates with particular needs.
We are not responsible for regulating university degrees. These are covered by the Quality Assurance Agency. You can find out more about this at the Quality Assurance Agency website.
