Using data effectively
One of the principles of the information management strategy is that data should only be stored if it will be useful.
Statistics for Wales
The Welsh Government’s Knowledge and Analytical Services Department carries out detailed analysis of data from every statutory collection. Electronic copies of their publications and bulletins can be found in the statistics topic area of our website (external link).
Database of Approved Qualifications in Wales (DAQW)
This database contains details of all qualifications approved for teaching in Wales.
For reporting in 2015, 2016 and 2017, the Welsh Government will use the same list of discounting codes as was used for reporting in 2014.
For reporting in 2018 and subsequent years, the Welsh Government intends developing new discounting codes that apply across qualification types (rather than only within types, as currently).

All Wales Core Data Sets
These data packs provide schools and local authorities (LAs) with sets of comparative performance data and contextual analyses to evaluate performance and support school performance.
The data packs can be used to identify strengths and weaknesses and prompt questions and further investigation when considering targeting action.
By analysis performance data, the packs help share good practice, a key component of the School Effectiveness Framework.
Both school and LA data packs are delivered via the All Wales Core Data Sets performance management system which can be accessed via the Schools' Portal (external link).
