We are delighted to publish the draft specification for the new Advanced Skills Baccalaureate Wales qualification. The specification is a submission draft, therefore further changes will be made. The final specification will be published by September 2022.


We are currently developing the new Level 3 Advanced Skills Baccalaureate qualification which will replace the Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate from September 2023.

This exciting, new Level 3 qualification will support learners to become effective, responsible, and active citizens ready to take their place in a sustainable global society and in the workplace. 

Through completing the Advanced Skills Baccalaureate Wales qualification, learners will:

  • develop, apply and be assessed on their skills of Planning and Organisation; Critical Thinking and Problem-Solving; Creativity and Innovation; and Personal Effectiveness (the ‘Integral’ Skills)
  • be given opportunities to further develop their skills of Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Competence (the ‘Embedded’ Skills)
  • develop an appreciation of the importance of skills development as a key aspect of life-long learning
  • engage in active, creative, and learner-led opportunities
  • enquire and think for themselves, plan, make choices and decisions, solve problems, and reflect on and evaluate these
  • develop initiative, independence, and resilience
  • work independently, take on responsibilities and work effectively with others.

The draft specification will be made available in June 2022 and a series of online briefing events will provide an overview of the new qualification, its content and assessment structure, and how the qualification will benefit learners.
