Childcare and Play Qualifications - workshops to engage the sector

News from Play Wales

Qualifications Wales is currently working with key partners to develop a new suite of Health & Social Care and Childcare qualifications for Wales. This work entails developing new Approval Criteria which set out the minimum requirements for a qualification. As part of this development work, we are engaging with experts from the sector to ask for their feedback on our proposals. We will be doing this via a series of Wales wide events for practitioners, employers, training providers, teachers and lecturers, in which we will be sharing aspects of the Approval Criteria. During the events, we will be inviting participants to discuss the aims, structure, schemes of assessment, titles and grading of the new qualifications.

We will also be asking attendees to consider the support and resources needed to deliver the qualifications from September 2019. We will then use the feedback from the sessions to strengthen the Approval Criteria ready to be published in March 2018.
