Awarding organisations must investigate allegations of malpractice quickly and thoroughly.
Ofqual may also investigate and take action where they have concerns. Ofqual investigated the Awarding Body for Vocational Achievement (AVA) Ltd, featured in the programme, earlier this summer and raised specific concerns about its relationship with Grafton College. The investigation is ongoing. Ofqual have requested any additional evidence from the BBC and would welcome any further information that may be provided in relation to the specific Panorama allegations.
