QUALIFICATIONS WALES

Are you a practising Welsh teacher or examiner?

You must apply via their website by 31st January. If you’re not a current practising Welsh teacher but you used to teach, or maybe you’re experienced in qualification design or work as an examiner then why not apply to be one of their expert advisors?  Applications close at 10am, 10th February.

Last chance to have your say: Reshaping the wider offer

Qualifications Wales want to know which qualifications should be available alongside new GCSEs to meet the needs of all learners aged 14 to 16.
