Higher Level Qualifications for the Creative and Cultural Sector
In partnership with Creative & Cultural Skills, Agored Cymru, the awarding body of choice for education and training providers in Wales, has developed the first of their kind higher level qualifications for the Craft, Design and Cultural Heritage sectors in Wales.
The qualifications target ambitious and talented learners in Wales who cannot readily access a more traditional route to higher education or afford to take unpaid internships. They cover the skills needed to pursue a career in various roles such as Collections Officer, Heritage Worker, Design Assistant, Junior Designer and Designer-Maker.
The qualifications were developed through consultation with expert individuals and organisations from across the three sectors; Craft, Design and Cultural Heritage.
Partnering with these specialists ensured that the qualifications encompass the identified skills gaps and the evolving needs of employers in Wales in each sector.
