Schedule 5 to the Government of Wales Act 2006 outlines the Legislative Competence of the National Assembly for Wales. Schedule 5 was populated in field 5 Education and Training and field 9 Health and Health Services as a result of the National Assembly for Wales (Legislative Competence) (Conversion of the Framework Power) Order 2007.

There are provisions in the further education Bill and the local government Bill, currently before Parliament, which will further enhance the legislative competence of the National Assembly. All other competences remain with Westminster.
