We will be able to let you know if we will be extending the two qualifications above further once we know the outcomes of the Welsh Sector Reviews. 

The outcome of the Welsh Sector Review confirmed that only Health and Social Care and CPLD qualifications offered by a consortium of City & Guilds and WJEC will be funded in Wales. Qualifications offered by other providers, such as Pearson, will remain funded until the new qualifications become available. As a result, the two qualifications below (Health and Social Care and CPLD) are being withdrawn in Wales. The last registration date is 31 August 2019 and the last certification date 31 August 2021.
