Leading change

The research and policy development hub for the awarding and assessment industry, providing information, ideas and advice on qualifications and assessment policy.

Get Involved

The participation of our members in developing our policies is essential to our work. We convene a range of policy, operational and specialist groups to facilitate their input and encourage members to feed into our consultation responses, submissions and requests for evidence. This ensures that our voice is the voice of the experts in qualifications and assessment.
