Validity Review 2020-21

Validity Review – Autumn 2020

Reviewing Qualifications is part of our duties as an Awarding Organisation regulated by Ofqual.  When we develop qualifications, we add a review date which is normally 5 years’ hence. This is to ensure our Qualifications remain valid and that there is still a demand for them.

Validity is a great opportunity for you to feedback on our qualifications. You can help us to check whether the qualification still provides an appropriate output of skills and knowledge in relation to its title, purpose and content.  

In order to ensure continuity of accreditation, we give plenty of warning ahead of time that qualifications are being reviewed. Therefore, starting this Autumn Term we have 93 qualifications that we would like your help in reviewing. They sit under the following broad headings:
