ABC Awards welcomes the announcement by Ofqual of the Withdrawal of the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) rules.

Commenting on the announcement, Paul Eeles, Chief Executive of ABC Awards, said: “We welcome Ofqual’s decision, the removal of the rules will give us greater flexibility to design regulated qualifications that have the employer and learner needs at the forefront. The removal of the framework does not however mean that the principle of unitisation is incorrect or should go.

“We are pleased that Ofqual have listened to feedback from the consultation and will not be looking to introduce any changes immediately. We will work closely with Ofqual, in the coming months, in order to support these changes and ensure a smooth transition which has minimal impact for learners.”
