OCR has decided not to participate in the future redevelopment of Essential Skills Wales, which will include incorporating Wider Key Skills into Essential Skills Wales.
Please refer to the Notice to centres below for further information and key dates for both suites of qualifications.
Key Skills allow learners to prove their ability to use certain transferable skills, equipping them for the workplace and further education.
The qualifications are targeted at pre- and post-16 learners. They are designed to improve students' motivation, progression and achievement.
The Wider Key Skills (Working with Others, Problem Solving and Improving Own Learning Performance) are assessed through an internally-assessed portfolio only.
