Bringing qualifications to life

We are excited to be working closely with a range of stakeholders across Wales to co-construct a new suite of GCSEs as part of Qualifications Wales’ ‘Qualified for the future’ project.


Our approach will ensure the new qualifications are inclusive, engaging, support the curriculum, and are fit for the future.


Qualifications Wales has published their Decisions Report and Approval Criteria for the new suite of GCSEs. Our Qualification Development Team will now be actively engaging with a broad range of stakeholders to create inspiring, innovative and exciting qualifications for learners in Wales.

The draft specifications will be available via our website during the summer term, with the final approved versions published from September. A comprehensive assessment pack for each qualification, including detailed assessment arrangements and sample assessment materials, will then be published in December, followed by Guidance for Teaching in January.
