Health & Social Care and Childcare engagement sessions

Engagement events for the new suite of Health & Social Care and Childcare qualifications.

Qualifications Wales is currently working with key partners to develop a new suite of Health & Social Care and Childcare qualifications for Wales. This work entails developing new Approval Criteria which set out the minimum requirements for a qualification. As part of this development work we are collaborating with the awarding body Consortium of City & Guilds London Institute and WJEC to engage with experts from the sector and ask for feedback on our proposals. We will be doing this via a series of Wales wide events for practitioners, employers, training providers, teachers and lecturers, in which we will be sharing aspects of the Approval Criteria. During the events, we will be inviting participants to discuss the aims, structure, schemes of assessment, titles and grading of the new qualifications.

We will also be asking attendees to consider the support and resources needed to deliver the qualifications from September 2019. We will then use the feedback from the sessions to strengthen the Approval Criteria ready to be published in March 2018.

Following the engagement carried out by Qualifications Wales, the awarding body Consortium of City & Guilds London Institute and WJEC will carry out further engagement in regard to what the assessment should look like, what the full subject content of the qualification should be and any other deliverability considerations. The Consortium will communicate these engagement events to stakeholders in due course.

There are also online surveys available for you to give us your feedback on the proposals for
