Letter to awarding organisations: qualification category on Register

We wrote to awarding organisations on 15 June 2018 outlining proposals to revise the list of qualification types available in the Portal, visible on the Register and against which we publicly report. We set out a revised list of qualification types with a timeline through which awarding organisations would be expected to review and, if necessary, amend the way their qualifications are categorised.

48 awarding organisations responded to our invitation to provide feedback, either with comments or to ask for clarification. We are now confirming our decisions: to amend the timeline for this work; and to more clearly distinguish between regulatory Types (qualifications with additional regulatory rules) and categories into which qualifications are sorted for convenience and clarity. This work is therefore about categories of data.
