Are you correctly identified as the Quality Nominee at your centre?

As a new Quality Nominee (QN), the first essential activity is to ensure that your centre Exams Officer has identified the role within your Edexcel Online account by selecting: 

  • the primary job role: 'Quality Nominee'
  • ticking the box, ‘Please check this box if you are the Quality Nominee for your centre’.

This will enable you to receive communications from Pearson relating to our quality assurance activities outlined within our centre guides.
