Children, Young People and Education Committee launch Welsh Baccalaureate inquiry

The National Assembly for Wales Committee on Children, Young People and Education has launched an inquiry into the benefits and disadvantages of the Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification (Welsh Bacc).

The Committee wants to examine how the Baccalaureate benefits learners, higher education and employers and how much it is valued. They want to hear from anyone who has the option to study the Welsh Bacc from 2015 onwards.

The Committee has produced surveys that they would like students, parents/guardians to complete.

They would like to hear from students about how you feel about studying the Welsh Bacc and whether you think it will be beneficial to your education, employment and life.

From parents/guardians, they would like to hear about your views of the qualification and its benefits or disadvantages for your child.

The survey will run until the 20th September 2018, and you can complete the survey here.

There are also opportunities for teachers and employers and members of the public to have their say. Roundtable events for teachers will be arranged for the autumn, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
