Head of Strategic Policy

Band 5 - Salary range £48,650 - £56,900 per annum

Qualifications Wales has been created as a Welsh Government Sponsored Body and is an independent regulator of qualifications and the qualification system in Wales.

The new body is responsible for ensuring that qualifications and the qualifications system are effective in meeting the reasonable needs of learners in Wales, and for promoting public confidence in these.

Qualifications Wales has a publicly appointed Chair and Board who is accountable for the fulfilment of Qualifications Wales' statutory functions and of its obligations to Welsh Government as a Welsh

Government Sponsored Body. The Board agree the strategic direction and governance of the organisation and the Executive Team (comprising the Chief Executive and the three Executive Directors) are responsible for the development and implementation of the strategic and operational plans.

The primary purpose of the role is to play a lead in ensuring that qualifications and the qualifications system in Wales are effective in meeting the needs of learners - and in supporting the promotion of public confidence in both of these.
