Consultation on Transfer Conditions Policy

For this consultation, we are seeking views on a new policy, called the Transfer Conditions Policy. This policy has not previously been published. A Transfer Condition is a condition to which an awarding body’s recognition by us may be subject.

The work of Qualifications Wales centres around two principal aims:

  • To ensure that qualifications, and the Welsh qualification system, are effective for meeting the reasonable needs of learners in Wales; and
  • To promote public confidence in qualifications and the Welsh qualification system.

In order to carry out these functions, the Qualifications Wales Act 2015 (the “Act”) gives us a number of powers which enable us to act in the interests of learners and promote public confidence in the qualification system and to take action where needed.

It is our intention that undertaking this consultation exercise will help us to ensure that the policy meets our principal aims, thereby improving the quality of our regulation and enforcement.

The consultation document can be found here.

Responses to this consultation should be submitted by 18:00 on 26 November 2018 at the latest using the online form that is available here.
