Assessment of Essential Skills Wales Qualifications

In July 2021, Qualifications Wales updated the alternative arrangements for Essential Skills Wales Qualifications.

This includes:

Essential Application of Number Skills L1-L3

Essential Communication Skills L1-L3

Essential Digital Literacy Skills E1-L3

Essential Employability Skills E3-L3

ESW in Application of Number E1-E3

ESW in Communication E1-E3

These arrangements should help those centres that are able to continue with teaching and learning but are finding the current assessment arrangements a barrier to achievement.

Agored Cymru has worked together with the other Essential Skills Awarding Bodies to provide updated guidance on the alternative arrangements.
