What is QiW?

Qualifications in Wales (QiW) is a brand new and comprehensive source of information on approved and designated qualifications awarded in Wales.

On 1 April 2016 QiW replaced DAQW with a more modern and functional system for searching those qualifications.

QiW contains all up-to-date data to enable centres to make their curriculum choices for the 2016/17 academic year.

We will continue to update and improve the system once it is in use, and will keep you informed as to progress as we do so.  Please include this webpage in your 'Favourites' list if you want to keep an eye on it!

The system has been designed to be as intuitive as possible for new users.  However, below are guidance materials that will help you to use the system if you have never used it before.

Welsh Government data on QiW

The Welsh Government sets policy on school performance measurement and decides on the allocation of contribution values of qualifications, performance points and the discount codes applied to individual qualifications. Qualifications Wales hosts the information within QiW. If you have any queries on how qualifications contribute towards performance measures, including GCSE/A level equivalency values, performance points or discount codes, please contact ims@wales.gsi.gov.uk
