CASS update (Centre Assessment Standards Scrutiny)

CASS update (Centre Assessment Standards Scrutiny)

5th, Jan 2021 General News

Ofqual announced in September 2019 that all Awarding Organisations (AOs) will be required to introduce a Centre Assessment Standards Scrutiny (CASS) strategy no later than September 2021. This approach forms part of Ofqual’s overall strategy to improve the controls Awarding Organizations' have in place where an assessment is marked by a centre (Training Provider), relating to Condition H2.

Awarding Organisation’s need to determine the most appropriate CASS approach for each of their qualifications and must meet Ofqual’s minimum requirements. One specific form of CASS is moderation and Ofqual has defined some qualifications will always be subject to moderation (such as GCSEs, A levels and Technical Qualifications).

The iPET Network CASS Strategy will be available to all approved Training Providers from February 2021.
