If you wish to deliver one or more of our health, social care and childcare qualifications, you will need to apply for approval.

If you're applying to deliver GCSE, AS and A level qualifications, then you should follow WJEC’s standard process for centre approval. More information on this can be found here

Please note: Centres currently registered with WJEC to deliver GCSE, AS and A Level qualifications do not need to apply for additional approval to offer the GCSE, AS or A Level qualifications in this suite.

To deliver any of our other qualifications in this suite you can apply using these three easy steps:

  1. Download an Application Form
  2. Take a look at our guidance document for completing the application
  3. Email your application form to us via

If you have any queries on the delivery of these qualifications, then please read our FAQs document which is full of helpful information on the approval process.

We have also created a useful Introduction to Working with City & Guilds/WJEC guide, which should provide you with all of the necessary information you require to administer the new health and social and childcare qualifications in Wales.

The Assessment and Quality Assurance Centre Guide is available here.

How to book your EQA activity for the Level 2 and 3 CCPLD Practice and Theory Qualifications:

  1. Agree with your EQA when your external quality assurance activity will take place (January, April, June/July or July/August)

  2. Enter your learners and submit your results within the relevant entry period (also referred to as Windows).

    It can take up to 3 working days for your entries to be processed and learners to appear on the Internal Assessment Marks Input System (IAMIS) for you to be able to enter your results.

    We recommend you enter your learners at least 7 days before the window closes to allow sufficient time for you to input learner results and for these to be viewed by your EQA prior to the visit. Please submit your final outcomes in a timely manner so your EQA can view your submission.

    Remember: When entering learners via WJEC base data, you need to look for the corresponding base data title indicated below.
