Validity Review 2022-23

Validity Review – Summer 2022

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. 

This year we are starting our 2023 Validity Cycle early to provide you with an opportunity 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 Summer Term we have 62 qualifications that we would like your help in reviewing. They are:
