Following an earlier consultation, CCEA Regulation, Ofqual and Qualifications Wales announced on 20 February 2020 a new requirement (Condition F1) for all regulated awarding organisations to publish fee information about their qualifications in a standard format that is easily accessible to potential purchasers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. These changes were due to come into force on 1 October 2020. We confirmed in June that changes to Condition F1 will now take effect on 18 January 2021, in order to allow awarding organisations to consider new statutory guidance on this Condition before it is introduced.
Some respondents to the consultation queried how existing products and services might map across to the newly defined fee categories. Informed by these responses, this consultation proposes statutory guidance for awarding organisations regulated by Ofqual in this respect. CCEA Regulation and Qualifications Wales will take into account any revisions made as a result of this consultation and will introduce guidance separately.
This consultation will close on 30 September at 23:45.
