We are committed to developing qualifications that meet the requirements of the relevant apprenticeship frameworks as well as the needs of employers throughout Wales.

Qualifications that can be used for apprenticeships are endorsed by the relevant skills sector council. They are mapped to its national occupational standards.

Each qualification meets the requirements of size and specifies the number of credits associated with competency and knowledge and the total number of learning hours that must be achieved to meet the framework.

Employee Rights and Responsibilities

Although these important skills do not currently require accreditation, they still need to be evidenced as part of an apprenticeship programme. To assist centres with this Agored Cymru has developed an accredited unit covering these skills. The unit is a great way for centres to evidence and recognise the learners understanding of employee rights and responsibilities.
