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 2 standards to 6. 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”. Vice-Chancellor, Reverend Canon Professor Peter Neil ​stated: “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. 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.
