Notification of Qualification Withdrawals

We know that this is a busy time, but we need to ensure you receive this notification as soon as possible as we are about to withdraw qualifications which you are approved to deliver/are delivering.

Deciding to Withdraw

During the Autumn Term, we reviewed 93 qualifications, and all those approved to deliver/delivering these qualifications were informed and invited to complete a survey or attend a panel/feedback. From this work, 17 qualifications were noted to have little or no registrations, over a period of 3 years. This means, under Ofqual’s General Conditions of Regulations, we must consider withdrawing these qualifications on 31 August 2021.
