Review of Qualifications 14-19
On 29 September 2011, the Deputy Minister for Skills, Jeff Cuthbert, launched a review to look into the qualifications currently on offer. The aims were to identify the qualifications that are most relevant, valued and understood and to ensure that these are available to learners. It also considered issues related to assessment and measurement of performance. The review ran from September 2011 to November 2012.
The review was overseen by a project board consisting of external advisers and internal Welsh Government officials, with an external Chair. This ensured that the review was based on impartial views and evidence, and was open to ideas and challenge from stakeholders.
The Project Board delivered its final report and recommendations to the Deputy Minister for Skills on 28 November 2012. A copy of the report is below.
On 29 January 2013, the Deputy Minister made an oral statement announcing that the Welsh Government broadly accepted all of the Review’s recommendations. In accepting these, the Welsh Government is setting a clear strategic direction and vision for qualifications for 14- to 19-year olds in Wales.
