Ofqual Report to Parliament


February 12

Ofqual has today laid a report to Parliament that sets out how we have performed our functions over the period between April 2011 and December 2014. It also provides an assessment of how we have met our statutory objectives over the same period.

Commenting on the report in their joint foreword, Glenys Stacey, Chief Regulator, and Amanda Spielman, Chair, say:

We believe we have developed effective regulatory approaches and dealt with standards issues immediately as they have arisen. What is more, we have spent an increasing proportion of our time and resource on detection and prevention rather than on more reactive work, while also implementing significant reforms to GCSEs, AS and A levels as well as vocational qualifications.


  1. Ofqual, the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulations job to maintain standards and confidence in qualifications. We look after GCSEs and A levels in England, and a wide range of vocational qualifications both in England and Northern Ireland. We also regulate the National Curriculum Assessments in England.

  2. We are independent of Government ministers and we report directly to Parliament in Westminster and the Northern Ireland Assembly. While we are independent, we give advice to Government on qualifications and assessment based on our research into these areas.
