The content of this page is not being updated. Get up to date information on Qualifications Wales at

The Priority Qualifications List (PQL) identifies qualifications that are a priority for approval by Qualifications Wales, the independent regulator of qualifications for Wales.

The Welsh Government and Qualifications Wales have jointly prepared the first PQL in exercise of their powers under section 13 of The Qualifications Wales Act 2015.

The PQL identifies qualifications which are a priority for Qualifications Wales in relation to ensuring that qualifications and the qualifications system are effective for meeting the needs of learners and employers in Wales.

The PQL will be regularly reviewed by the Welsh Government and Qualifications Wales.

Further information about the PQL can be accessed via Qualification Wales.

The current PQL can be found at Qualifications Wales - Priority qualifications list and forward look (external link).
