Qualifications Wales is a Welsh Government Sponsored Body established through the Qualifications Wales Act 2015. They regulate non-degree qualifications and the qualifications system in Wales.


  • design and develop a professional, contemporary website for a brand new organisation
  • understand the types of users who would visit the website and what information they would require
  • bring together content from multiple sources to produce a coherent and engaging website


  • consultations and workshops with Qualifications Wales staff over a number of weeks helped us determine who would be visiting the website and why
  • user journey mapping was completed and from this we were able to create the information architecture and site map
  • once the information architecture was defined we were able to produce page wireframes and carry out graphic design to define the look and feel of the site
  • development was carried out using the Agile SCRUM methodology
  • develop a bespoke website built on the Umbraco content management system


  • Umbraco content management system allows the content editors at Qualifications Wales to manage content with ease
  • Qualifications Wales can tag content with metadata, allowing website users to search for categories of documents using the bespoke search engine
  • website design takes into account the various users of the site with separate sections for learners and regulators
  • bilingual functionality throughout
