Ofqual’s approach to regulating technical qualifications

03 August 2018

ASCL/PPC welcomes the consultation on Ofqual’s approach to regulating technical qualifications. Used appropriately to support the education sector, the regulation of T levels qualifications and Apprenticeship standards, will have the support of employers, providers, students and the general public.

We believe that the proposals for the regulation of the new technical qualifications will help providers, students and employers to understand better how technical qualifications are structured, assessed and regulated.

ASCL/PPC broadly agrees with the approach taken by Ofqual to inform the sector, sector representative bodies, employers and policy makers of the approach to regulation of technical qualifications. We do, however, urge Ofqual to ensure that regulation of T levels is not overly complicated for providers, consumers or employers.
