Our vision is of a powerful trade association representing the collective interests of the UK’s qualifications and assessments industry. We envisage a world in which higher-quality technical, professional and vocational education, results in stronger public confidence in what we do.
Our mission is to be the collective voice of the UK’s qualifications and assessments industry.
STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES 2018-2023
Raise the value of qualifications and assessments so that policy-makers and the wider public understand the transformative role our members play in improving the UK’s education and skills landscape.
Influence the on-going apprenticeship reforms in England by ensuring that a more consistent and single quality assurance framework is adopted in relation to end-point assessment.
Contribute to the successful roll-out of new T-Levels in England by encouraging diversity and market choice for educators, employers and students.
Mitigate the risks of regulatory impact and cost burdens on our members by acting pro-actively and earlier in discussions with government and regulators, UK-wide.
Support all our members in a time of rapid change and promote the export growth and potential of the industry internationally.
