Qualifications Wales consider vocational qualifications to be those which assess knowledge, understanding and/or skills that relate explicitly to the world of work.
Vocational qualifications should reflect the needs of employers whether they lead to employment or to the next stage of learning.
Qualifications Wales regulates vocational qualifications through:
- Sector reviews;
- Designating qualifications;
- Monitoring qualifications;
- Commissioning and developing new qualifications.
More information is available in our Vocational Qualifications Strategy.
