Essential Skills Wales Qualifications Review Survey


We are undertaking a review of Essential Skills Wales qualifications.

The aim of the review is to gather evidence from our key stakeholders and receive feedback on how fit for purpose the Essential Skills Wales qualifications are. The aim is also to identify any issues or suggestions arising from the feedback and evidence, and to consider what changes or reforms may be required to ensure Essential Skills Wales qualifications continue to meet the needs of learners, learning providers and other relevant stakeholders.

This online survey is a central feature of our Essential Skills Wales qualifications review and will help to build on and consolidate the findings of our interviews with learning providers and our technical review of the qualifications.

The survey is divided into four sections, each one targeted at a particular set of stakeholders:

  1. Learning providers (those who teach, assess and/or oversee the delivery of the qualifications). This includes schools, colleges, adult community education, work-based learning and traineeship providers
  2. Learners – those who are completing or who have completed an Essential Skills Wales qualification within the past two years
  3. Employers, including those who manage apprentices and trainees that are completing or have completed an Essential Skills Wales qualification
  4. Other interested parties such as professional bodies, awarding bodies and parents/guardians
