Overview of the new Advanced Skills Baccalaureate Wales qualification


The new Advanced Skills Baccalaureate Wales qualification will be based on key decisions that came out of Qualification Wales’ consultation:

  • The current Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate will be withdrawn with the final award of the qualification in Summer 2024.
  • A new Level 3 qualification will be introduced to replace the Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate. Available to learners from September 2023, awarded for the first time in Summer 2025.
  • The new qualification will be equivalent in size and demand to an A Level and will be graded A*-E.
  • The new qualification will be available as a standalone qualification that can be taken alongside other general and vocational qualifications as part of a diverse programme of learning.
