A summary


The construction and built environment sector is an important and dynamic sector in Wales with 130,000 employees in 13,000 companies of varying sizes, fulfilling a diverse range of occupations.
A high number of Welsh learners take qualifications associated with this sector - over 8,000 certifications in 2015.
The Building the Future review found that the range of qualifications relevant to this sector is complex, confusing and lacks coherence.
Progression routes are not always clear with learners experiencing repetition as they progress through qualifications.
There were also concerns about assessment arrangements.
To solve these challenges, Qualifications Wales decided to develop requirements for new national qualifications in Construction and Building Services Engineering.

Our solution

Through a competitive bidding process Qualifications Wales awarded a contract to City & Guilds and EAL to develop and deliver the new qualifications.
We have worked closely with Qualifications Wales and City & Guilds to develop a suite of Construction and Building Services Engineering qualifications in line with the new structures set out in the requirements.
The organisations also collaborated to develop new assessments that deliver the changes required to address previous concerns.
We carried out extensive stakeholder engagement to support the implementation and delivery of these new qualifications and assessments.

The result

Engineering student learning Construction and Building Services Engineering skills
