 Ofqual event aims to shape the qualifications landscape

Ofqual has hosted an event for stakeholders to learn more about England’s vocational and technical qualifications landscape.

Around 90 representatives from employers, trailblazer groups, training providers and educational associations and organisations attended the symposium at the Royal Society in London. T

The event aims to raise awareness and understanding of the qualifications landscape, gather feedback from attendees on their use of qualifications and discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with reform.

Ofqual was particularly keen to describe and discuss how regulation can potentially best support them.

Ofqual chief regulator, Sally Collier said: “We want employers to be confident that vocational and technical qualifications meet their needs, and those of their employees. We are already supporting those aims through the experience and expertise we bring to regulation.

“The event provides another opportunity for us to listen to what users of qualifications have to say, and ensure that they are right at the forefront of shaping the new landscape.”

On the day, Ofqual also launched its new interactive tool to help people navigate the current qualifications landscape. It aims to make its register of regulated qualifications more accessible and easier to explore.
