Qualifications Wales regulates qualifications, other than degrees, in Wales.
We are an independent statutory body, funded by the Welsh Government. This means that we make our own decisions about qualifications and provide independent expert advice to others. It also means that we oversee the standards to which qualifications are awarded, independent of influence from others.
We regulate qualifications that are developed and delivered by the awarding bodies that we recognise. A recognised awarding body must comply with the rules that we set.
Working with a wide range of organisations, we monitor the compliance of awarding bodies, review existing qualifications, oversee the design of new requirements and support the qualifications system.
We are accountable to the people of Wales through the National Assembly for Wales. Through our work we ensure that learners, practitioners and the public can be confident that qualifications, and the qualification system, meet their needs.
The Scottish Qualifications Authority is the national accreditation and awarding body in Scotland. We work in partnership with industry, universities, colleges and schools to provide high quality, flexible and relevant qualifications and assessments - embedding industry standards where appropriate.
