Consultation

The status of the Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification

Purpose of the consultation

The Children, Young People and Education Committee is conducting an inquiry into the revised Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification that was introduced for teaching from September 2015. The Committee will be looking at the qualification at Key Stage 4 and post-16.

The inquiry will focus specifically on:

  • The extent to which the Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification is understood and valued by learners, parents, education professionals in schools and colleges, higher education institutions and employers;
  • The extent to which the Welsh Baccalaureate is considered by learners, education professionals in schools and colleges, employers and higher education to be an equivalent, rigorous qualification;
  • The status of the Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification in schools and colleges, including the Welsh Government’s target for universal adoption and the potential impact of this approach;
  • The wider impact of studying the Welsh Baccalaureate on other curriculum subjects and education provision;
  • The benefits and disadvantages of the Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification to learners, schools and colleges, higher education institutions and employers.

The deadline for responses is Thursday 20 September 2018. Please send your views to: SeneddCYPE@assembly.wales

As part of this inquiry, we are also using additional evidence gathering methods to target specific audiences. You are welcome to respond to these, should they be of relevance to you:

Providing Written Evidence

The National Assembly for Wales has two official languages, Welsh and English.

In line with the Assembly’s Official Languages Scheme, the Committee requests that documents or written responses to consultations intended for publication or use in National Assembly proceedings are submitted bilingually. When documents or written responses are not submitted bilingually, we will publish in the language submitted, stating that it has been received in that language only.

We expect other organisations to implement their own standards or schemes and to comply with their statutory obligation.

Please see guidance for those providing evidence for committees.
