Construction and the Built Environment Qualifications
A new suite of fundable Construction and Building Services Engineering qualifications are being developed to better meet the skills needs of Wales and will be ready for first teaching from September 2021. Designed with employers, the change will simplify what is currently a complex landscape of more than 400 qualifications to provide clear progression routes and qualifications that will make learners more ready for further study and progression to the workplace.
With the sector employing over 130,000 people in the UK, it is vital that the qualifications reflect employers’ needs. City & Guilds, EAL and WJEC are working with employers, sector representatives, skills card schemes and the standard setting body to build a new landscape of qualifications with clear progression options for learners and ensuring they are fit for the modern workplace.
