Qualifications Wales Strategy

We have a strategy for the organisation that was approved in October 2017 and runs for the period 2018-22.

In this strategy, we set out:

  • Our role within the qualifications system
  • What we want to achieve
  • How we work
  • Our plans

The document is intended to be a high-level overview, and acts as a guide to other more detailed documents.

Supporting Plans

Our plans focus specifically on our work relating to general qualifications and vocational qualifications, and are supported by our corporate capability plan. The strategic plans are intended to give a three- to five-year view of our priorities.  As a responsive regulator, we recognise that priorities can change, so we will review these plans every year to ensure that they continue to be relevant, and they will be formally reconsidered by the Qualifications Wales Board after three years (sooner if our annual review suggests the need for significant change).

The strategic plans focus our activity and provide a basis for annual planning (including the allocation of our resources) and measuring progress.  We measure progress through the fulfilment of operational priorities set out in our business plan, and success measures are described in each strategic plan.

Our strategic plans relate to our purpose, what we want to achieve and our approach, so build on the earlier elements of this strategy.
