Key Stage 4 - National / Foundation

Approved by WJEC

Here are activities and resources created by Ross Thomas, former Welsh Baccalaureate Development Officer, in partnership with the WJEC,  to support you in delivering the coursework requirements for the new Welsh Baccalaureate 2015.

The resources consist of a challenge document for your assessed piece of work, along with a trial challenge which can help students prepare and develop skills for their project.

To help you experience business and the world of work you should work together with others in a team of 3-6 members and use skills and knowledge you have developed from researching Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales to design and develop an innovative product based on the collections at the museums. The product must be cost-effective, innovative and suitable for sale in the Amgueddfa Cymru shops.

Additional workshops to support your study are available. Please contact us for more details. Some workshops may be subject to charging.

Cost: Free of charge as is a self-led session.
