City & Guilds and EAL have collaborated to develop a new suite of fundable Construction and Building Services Engineering qualifications in Wales which launched in September 2021.

The new suite of qualifications has been developed to better meet the skills needs of the built environment sector in Wales and designed with employers. This change has simplified the current complex landscape of more than 400 qualifications to provide clear progression routes and qualifications that will make learners more ready and confident for further study and progression to the workplace.

Qualifications Wales is leading a process to streamline skills and raise standards through a review of the qualifications system across the construction and built environment sector. The Qualifications Wales Building the Future report identified the need to rationalise hundreds of qualifications into a simplified qualification system that had clear progression routes and met the needs of employers and the economy of Wales.
