Wales should learn from Scotland in the future development of its qualifications system, a new report has recommended.
A review of Wales’ qualifications market said the work completed by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) was “impressive” and could be considered a possible model for the future.
But it maintained that “at this moment in time” there was no reason to move away from a competitive qualifications market.
Education Minister Leighton Andrews welcomed the findings and while the panel did not consider the current system to be “critically flawed”, said no immediate changes were necessary.
It comes as UK Education Secretary Michael Gove considers an overhaul of England’s exams system and a separate review considers the future of qualifications in Wales.
