Welsh Government to cease funding Wider Key Skills from 31 December 2015
Wider Key Skills will no longer be eligible for funding from the Welsh Government from 31 December 2015.
After a review of qualifications, the Welsh Government determined that these skills will now be provided for by the new Essential Employability qualifications, which we offer as part of the Pearson Essential Skills Wales (ESW) suite.
The following qualifications will no longer be funded in Wales:
- Improving own learning: Levels 1-4
- Problem solving: Levels 1-4
- Working with others: Levels 1-4
For learners who have yet to complete these qualifications, final certification date will be 31 December 2016.
