The Welsh Government regulate general and vocational qualifications within Wales by recognising and monitoring Awarding Organisations to make sure they operate fairly and consistently often operating in a joined up approach with the regulators in England (Ofqual) and Northern Ireland (Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment).

In completing the regulatory function, the Welsh Government, works with Awarding Organisations to maintain standards in qualifications and assessment in order to maintain the confidence of the public in the qualifications system.
