Tailored workshops on the wider offer

Over recent months, we have been gathering views on what qualifications are needed alongside GCSEs for learners in Wales aged 14-16 to support the new Curriculum for Wales.

As part of an extensive review, we listened to the views of learners, teachers, colleges, Pupil Referral Units, employers, training providers, universities, parents/carers and others. We also looked at the qualifications offered in other nations. 

Following this, we’re holding workshops to share our findings and explore initial ideas for the future wider offer.

The workshops will be held between 13 - 21 June 2022 via Microsoft Teams and should last no longer than 55 minutes.  

We’re running several workshops for different groups; each session will provide an overview of the findings and a discussion on how to address issues that have come out of the review but will be tailored to the audience. We want to hear from as many people as we can across Wales.
