We want you! Join our Learner Advisory Group today

We believe it’s important to listen to the voices of our learners, and as we work to develop the new GCSEs and related qualifications as part of Qualification Wales’ project “Qualified for the Future”, we are looking for learners from across Wales to join our Learner Advisory Group.

Commenting on this new advisory group, Jonathan Thomas, PR and Brand Manager at WJEC: “Learners are at the heart of everything we do, and as we co-construct these new qualifications, we feel it is extremely important that their views are heard during the development process. This is an amazing opportunity for learners across Wales to feedback on our ideas and understand the process of developing our qualifications.”
