Qualifications Wales - Urgent Call for Letters of Support

In September 2015 Qualifications Wales became a new independant regulator of non-degree qualifications and the qualifications systems in Wales.

As part of their purpose, Qualifications Wales have developed a new approach to regulation which ensures qualifications and the qualifications system in Wales is effective and meets the reasonable needs of learners.

As an Awarding Organisation, it is now our responsibility to submit qualifications to be designated by Qualification Wales and to provide letters of support from employers/training providers stating the importance and the need for delivery of our qualifications to learners in Wales.

Please take the time to fill out our template letters and provide your support for our new Entry Level 3, Level 1 and DfE 2018 KS4 and KS5 approved qualifications to be deisgnated in Wales.

Qualifications Wales ask the following to be included in your support letters:

  • Full title of the qualification

  • Age range applicable to the centre

  • Potential number of candidates (if known)

  • Brief explanation as to why they are interested in offering this qualification

Download the quick guidance document and Letter of Support templates from the downloads section on the right, relevant to the qualifications you wish to support. 

Please send all letters of support to the Product Development department:- qualsdevelopment@theimi.org.uk
