Each year, millions of people take qualifications that help them to progress in their lives – to the next stage of their studies, into employment or in their enjoyment of a leisure pursuit. Now, more than ever, the work Ofqual does to secure quality and confidence in those qualifications is in the public eye. The pandemic has fundamentally affected many aspects of how students are trained, educated and assessed, and the effects will continue to ripple through for years to come.
Ofqual has a key role to play in looking ahead to the future. It’s important that public confidence in qualifications is secured for the future, that the implications of the pandemic are accounted for and that qualifications are awarded that have the confidence of all stakeholders.
We are looking to recruit a high calibre researcher and a data analyst to our Standards & Comparability and Data & Analytics teams. Research and data are at the heart of our approach to intelligent, evidence-based regulation. The work we do strengthens our regulatory decision-making, supporting our position as a credible authority by adopting innovative, critical approaches to research and business intelligence. Our research has a direct impact on education, informing approaches to the assessment and maintenance of standards in vocational and national qualifications.
We investigate a range of issues relating to how qualifications, exams and other assessments are designed, delivered and awarded. Some recent examples of our research and statistical production can be found here:
