Priority Qualifications List

What is the Priority Qualifications List?

The Priority Qualifications List is a document jointly prepared between Qualifications Wales and Welsh Ministers which sets out the qualifications that have been agreed as priorities for approval at a given time.

Such qualifications may include  those for which specific approval criteria have been developed to meet the needs of learners in Wales. Those needs might be in relation to the curriculum in Wales or to the requirements of employers in Wales, for example.

The Priority Qualifications List also includes a Forward Look, which aims to identify qualifications that may be included on the List going forward. The Forward Look will enable early development of approval criteria for these qualifications, and may give awarding bodies notice of likely future priorities.

 The Priority Qualifications List is available here.
