Academy Training Course: An Introduction To The Awarding Sector

December 5 @ 10:15 am 4:30 pm

This training day is designed to give those who are new to the regulated awarding sector an introduction to the work of awarding organisations (AOs) and some of the current challenges they face. It can form a useful part of staff induction and it may also be useful to those staff who may have worked in awarding organisations for some time and who now wish to expand their understanding of an awarding organisation’s role and responsibilities.

The purpose of the day is to explain the priorities of AOs as well as their obligations to third party stakeholders including: stakeholders, regulators, centres, and other customers. the day will also provide an overview of the key regulatory areas that AOs need to be aware of and ensure compliance with. The course also provides a short introduction to qualification design and assessment characteristics.

The content of the day will be delivered using a mixture of presentations, discussions, and group exercises.

Although the content of the day will touch on aspects of regulation in Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales, the main focus will be on regulation in England.
