Ofqual launches call for evidence on centre-based assessment judgements in vocational and technical qualifications. 

Ofqual have launched a call for evidence on the assessment of qualifications in centres (schools, colleges, training providers, etc.).

Ofqual have recently been reviewing the quality of centre-based assessment judgements in vocational and technical qualifications. Ofqual need to be sure that assessment is fair and consistent whenever and wherever it is delivered, so that both standards and public confidence in regulated qualifications are maintained.

The evidence Ofqual have suggests that not all organisations’ controls are as robust as they need to be. Ofqual are also aware that there are practical problems for awarding organisations in remaining compliant with rules when assessment is delegated to centres.

Ofqual are therefore inviting awarding organisations, centres and other interested parties to inform their ongoing work to build a detailed picture of practice across the sector. Ofqual will use these responses to decide whether their rules are right on this point and, if not, how they might be changed. If Ofqual decide to change them, they will consult formally.

The call for evidence closes at 5pm on Friday 15 June.
