Essential Skills Wales update – all Welsh centres affected

Essential Skills Wales update – all Welsh centres affected 

In 2012 a review of Essential Skills Wales (ESW) qualifications was conducted by the Welsh Government to evaluate the offer in Wales to ensure relevance and value of qualifications for learners.

A number of revisions were put in place for ESW qualifications which build on the practice of developing these skills through curriculum and qualification structures variously referred to as Core Skills, Common Skills, Basic Skills and Key Skills.

Following a full review of the redevelopment requirements to support the new ESW Suite of qualifications, IMI have made the decision that we will not be involved with the reform programme for January 2016.

As such, IMI will be withdrawing our current provision of Essential Skills Wales qualifications when the Welsh Government pilots the new Essential Skills Wales qualifications in January 2016.

This means that the last date for entry for IMI Essential Skills Wales qualifications will be 31 December 2015.

IMI will continue to support and assess the qualifications up to the final certification date for these qualifications.
