‘Crazy’ quality assurance system for apprenticeships should be handed over to Ofqual says Halfon #SkillsWorld

The chair of the Education Select Committee, Robert Halfon MP, has told the #SkillsWorld podcast that Ofqual should become the sole End-Point Quality Assurance (EQA) provider for England’s apprenticeship model in future.

Speaking exclusively to FE News, following his committee’s latest evidence gathering session, the former skills minister said:

I think the Institute for Apprenticeships has a very clear role in developing the standards. What I’m not clear about is why we have a cast of thousands involved in the end-point assessment and quality assurance of apprenticeships.
