There have been separate qualifications regulators in the UK jurisdictions for many years. However, since the devolution of education policy there has been a greater legitimate divergence across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We are aware that this may place additional burden on awarding organisations/bodies (AOs/ABs) offering qualifications across the three jurisdictions. We actively work together to reduce the risk of unnecessary burden, whilst acknowledging we have different legislative responsibilities in respect of it.
