WJEC – formally the Welsh Joint Education Committee, is a consortium of 22 local education authorities in Wales providing qualifications and support for teachers and students. We believe in the personal and professional development of all our learners and we want to help each and every one of our students realise their potential. Our aim is to bring out the best in students and teachers by providing distinguished examinations and assessment which are highly valued by both employers and universities. As well as providing qualifications WJEC also offers professional development, educational resources, and support for adults who wish to learn Welsh. WJEC also manages the prestigious National Youth Orchestra of Wales, The National Youth Theatre of Wales and National Youth Dance Wales. These are part of National Youth Arts Wales, which is supported by WJEC in partnership with Tŷ Cerdd.
