GCSE Digital Technology

Qualifications Wales is pleased to publish the approval criteria for the new GCSE Digital Technology qualification, which have been developed in collaboration with stakeholders since our review of qualifications and the qualification system in the ICT sector, Delivering Digital, was published in December 2018.

The approval criteria will allow an awarding body to develop the qualification, which is intended to be available for first teaching in September 2021. The specification and sample assessment materials should be available to centres twelve months prior to this.

The video above shows a summary of our requirements for this qualification and the full details can be read in the PDF document below.

We also invite you to read the ‘GCSE Digital Technology: How We Developed the Approval Criteria’ document, which summarises the development approach that we took and how we responded to feedback from stakeholders.
