I am pleased to announce these five member appointments today to the Board of Qualifications Wales.

These members are joining at a pivotal moment, both as the centre-determined grade model is delivered for summer 2021 and as the future qualification offer for 14 to16 year olds is being developed to reflect the Curriculum of Wales.

The board undertakes an important role in ensuring that Qualifications Wales has effective leadership, has a well-defined strategic direction, and undertakes activities efficiently and in accordance with its aims, objectives and targets.
