The primary purpose of the qualification review process is to ensure that Agored Cymru is able to assess the need for, review, and maintain approval for high quality qualifications that are relevant and continue to respond to the education agenda in Wales.

The Process

The qualification review process consists of three phases:

Consultation Phase: centres can send us their feedback and comments by emailing

Evaluation Phase: we collate and analyse the feedback and make a final decision

Publication of Results: we publish the results on our website and notify centres of the final decisions.

The review is a collaborative process involving Agored Cymru, representatives from centres who have offered the qualifications, and employers and organisations involved in the development of the qualification. The review can recommend one of the following outcomes:

  • Extend
  • Extend / Amend
  • Withdraw (without replacement)
