The Work Related Education (WRE) qualifications meet the needs of the Welsh Government’s Careers and the World of Work (CWW): a framework for 11 to 19-year-olds in Wales.
The qualifications meet the different themes of the CWW: personal achievement; seeking information; understanding the world of work; guidance; and making and implementing decisions.
The qualifications enable learners to be employment ready and contribute meaningfully within the workplace, whether in an employed or volunteering role.
The qualifications support learners to:
- realise their future aspirations through planning and exploring potential career and employment routes
- understand the skills, values and attitudes required for the workplace
- understand how their learning is relevant to their future.
We support and empower young people to develop their employability skills through the qualifications. This means that young people are ready for the demands of the workplace and employers have employees that meet their standards and expectations.
