Qualifications and Standards Committee

The Qualifications and Standards Committee ensures that Pearson awards qualifications to the standard expected by its stakeholders.

The Committee monitors Pearson's compliance with its regulatory requirements as set out in Ofqual’s General Conditions for Awarding Organisations as well as the requirements of other regulators such as SQA, DfES and CCEA. The Committee also advises Pearson on the nature and performance of its qualifications and the implications of new qualifications-related initiatives, to help maintain the standards, probity and fitness for purpose of those qualifications.
