Qualifications Wales is leading a process to streamline skills and raise standards across the health and social care, and childcare sectors. This new approach includes the development of a new suite of qualifications covering levels 1 – 5, and features clear progression routes for learners to both employment and further study.

City & Guilds/WJEC bring together the strength of two market leading awarding organisations in qualifications and skills development. We strongly believe in empowering people with opportunities for the future. Our aims during the development and implementation of this new suite of qualifications are to help people get into a job, get on in the job and go further. We will help do this by:

  • driving up standards in health and social care, and childcare in Wales
  • developing learning programmes and assessments that meet employers needs by putting them at the heart of development
  • providing learners with clear progression routes so they understand their next potential career steps
  • achieving the ambition of empowering a bilingual nation.
