Response to Qualifications Wales Consultation
In 2023, Qualifications Wales consulted on the Full 14-16 Qualifications Offer in Wales with proposals on a Skills Suite, Pre-vocational Qualifications, and Foundation Qualifications.
Enginuity submitted on the consultation in June 2023:
- Supporting the proposals for a standalone qualification, to assess the four integral skills described in the Curriculum for Wales, and Skills for Work units,
- Supporting, in principle, the proposal to include Pre-vocational qualifications in Engineering, but noting that these qualifications should be at both Level 1 and 2, rather than just Level 1, nothing that, if implemented, the proposal would reduce the options for vocational learners, and
- Recommending that a pass/fail grading be retained for Pre-vocational qualifications in Engineering as that better reflects the importance of consistency and standards in engineering work.
