Social Care Wales and Qualifications Wales have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to support effective working relationships between the two organisations and set out the values that will underpin their shared areas of work.

It comes as the two organisations collaborate closely on the creation of a new suite of qualifications in the health and social care and childcare sector.

Qualifications Wales Executive Director Policy and Research Kate Crabtree said: 

“This is an important step forward as we work together to ensure that employers have confidence in the quality of qualifications, while learners will be equipped with the knowledge and skills they need in this important employment sector.”

Sarah McCarty, Director of Improvement and Development at Social Care Wales, said: 

“Working in partnership is very important to us, and so we are delighted to formalise our relationship with Qualifications Wales. We have a shared objective of making sure this range of qualifications supports a skilled and confident workforce and benefits the thousands of people who rely on care and support every day right across Wales. We can best achieve this by working closely together.''
