Understanding the Welsh Baccalaureate


The Welsh Baccalaureate, or Welsh Bacc for short, is unique to Wales.

It has been introduced to prepare students between the ages of 14 and 19 for employability, further study and life.  A student is awarded the Welsh Bacc by completing the Skills Challenge Certificate - an innovative skills-based qualification along with achieving a specified combination of qualifications.  


More information can be found from Welsh Government on why the Welsh Baccalaureate and Skills Challenge Certificate should be universally adopted by school and FE Colleges.
