What is Ofqual regulation

Ofqual began its operations in April 2010. It was set up under the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 and is covered by the Education Act 2011. Ofqual stands for “The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation”. It is a non-ministerial government department that legalises qualifications, exams and tests within England. The body was established in an interim form and is operated as a part of the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA). Ofqual took over the supervisory functions, which were undertaken by the QCA at one time.

Before Ofqual, the QCA regulated awarding bodies, qualifications and examinations. Ofqual ensures that qualifications are fair, the standards are secure and public confidence is maintained.
