Changes to Essential Skills Wales

19th November 2015

There are changes underway relating to Essential Skills Wales (ESW), however these are currently awaiting for ministerial approval. The new ESW qualifications will be titled:

•    Essential Communication Skills
•    Essential Application of Number Skills
•    Essential Digital Literacy Skills


The current proposal for the changeover is for the current ESW qualifications to continue to be available for registration until 31 December 2015 with the last certificate date of 31 December 2016. The Federation are in regular communication with the Welsh Government and will post any further updates here.
