We are proud to announce that Awarding UK, the End-Point Assessment Service based within Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU), has successfully gained Ofqual Recognition. This is the culmination of many months of hard work and preparation by the Awarding UK team, which qualifies Awarding UK to effectively deliver end-point assessments for a wide range of apprenticeship standards in the education and childcare sectors, extending the current offer from two standards to six. The aim is to continue to develop a portfolio of end-point assessments which builds on the significant expertise already held by BGU in these areas.
Emily Hughes, Partnerships Development Manager and Awarding UK Responsible Officer, commented: “We believe BGU is the first University in the country to achieve Ofqual Recognition for end-point assessment, and we are proud to be leading the way in enhancing access to education and skills in this way.”
“Here at BGU, we believe strongly in providing opportunities for people to develop and learn, and end-point assessment is a new and exciting way of allowing us to expand that work,” said Vice-Chancellor Reverend Canon Professor Peter Neil. “The Awarding UK team have worked tirelessly to ensure that they will deliver the highest quality end-point assessments, and this is a major vote of confidence from Ofqual”. Awarding UK end-point assessment delivery will commence at the start of 2021.
