Pearson statement on Ofqual report 'School and college purchasing behaviours'

Rod Bristow, president of Pearson’s UK and core markets, has responded to the Ofqual report on qualification purchasing behaviours in schools and colleges.

As we redevelop our GCSE A level and BTEC qualifications our focus is on quality, so I am pleased to see that this research shows that this is what schools have said they value the most. Quality and support for great teaching sits at the heart of our competitive proposition. We define quality by putting the student at the centre; by ensuring that our qualifications are second to none in defining the knowledge and skills needed for progression to further or higher education and into a career. Our independent International Panel of Experts has endorsed our approach as delivering truly world class qualifications - internationally benchmarked and globally credible.
