Find out about the groups of subject and sector stakeholders sharing their expertise with us as we redevelop our GCSE, A level and BTEC qualifications.
Why do we need subject and sector panels?
Government changes to the regulatory and policy frameworks of AS and A level, GCSE, BTEC and Apprenticeship qualifications have put greater emphasis on the views of subject and sector stakeholders. So, as part of our redevelopment process, we consult with a wide range of external stakeholders.
We work with stakeholders in two main ways, for:
- broad research and engagement – building primary evidence through one-to-one interviews, questionnaires, informal meetings and online discussions and communities
- objective advice, challenge and validation – evaluation of evidence through subject and sector panels of external stakeholders.
