Health and Social Care in Wales for September 2019

The deferred qualifications include those that fall into the following two categories:

  • Level 3 GCE Advanced Subsidiary and Advanced in Health and Social Care, and Childcare

The approval of these qualification types by Qualifications Wales will now be restricted at a later date - now from September 2020. Click here for more information on the announcement on Qualifications Wales’ website.
