The new Curriculum for Wales will have implications for the qualifications that are developed and secured for learners in Wales at age 16. Therefore, new qualifications will need to be developed over the next few years that are aligned with and supportive of the content and ethos of the new curriculum. We are taking a co-creation approach with the education sector to develop the requirements for these qualifications

We are seeking to expand and strengthen our group of subject assessment and curriculum experts to provide expert advice to support the next stage of this project which will development the minimum requirements for each of the new qualifications we are developing. Drawing on their experience in the field of educational assessment and/or curriculum design, we expect the experts to:

  • provide high quality, specialist and technical advice and input into proposals;
  • produce concise written documents e.g. briefings, options papers, research summaries to high standard, in a timely manner for internal review;
  • attend face-to-face and/or remote meetings to present findings and share research, knowledge and expertise

We particularly welcome applicants with expertise covering the following areas and subjects:
