Essential Skills Wales are the qualifications that replaced Key and Basic skills in Wales in September 2010. They are only available in Wales. Please ensure you are approved for these qualifications before making entries. Please note that entries cannot be withdrawn or amended once submitted.
Basedata for Essential Skills qualifications (Application of Number, Communication and ICT) has been made available for the whole year. The entries should come under the September series, which may need to be created within your management information system.
For ease of use, we have provided the basedata for the Wider Key Skills qualifications (which you may wish to use in conjunction with the Essentials Skills Wales qualifications) here for you to download.
