Ofqual and recognition

Ofqual, Qualifications Wales and recognition


It is vital for both CIOL Qualifications and our candidates that the quality of our exams is monitored independently and formally recognised by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual),  Qualifications Wales (QW) and the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA). This reassures candidates that our qualifications remain of the highest standard and demonstrates consistency, fairness and transparency. All our qualifications are regulated and included on the Register of Regulated Qualifications.

The guidance we receive and the systems we employ allow us to achieve greater effectiveness in the delivery of our exam services and maintain CIOL Qualifications' position as a leading international Awarding Organisation. We review our policies and procedures regularly and revise them when necessary in response to stakeholder or regulatory feedback.
