Qualifications Wales

Qualifications Wales is the independent organisation responsible for regulating general and vocational qualifications in Wales.

We regulate awarding bodies offering qualifications in Wales. We are an independent body focused on publicly funded qualifications, including GCSEs, A levels and vocational qualifications.

Degrees are not part of our work but we work with universities and colleges to make sure they understand qualifications so that learners can progress into higher education. We make sure qualifications are the best they can be for learners, teachers and employers. We work with awarding bodies to support the availability of qualifications through the Welsh language.
