Our approach to risk with Bryan Horne

In this session Bryan explained Ofqual’s approach to risk. We described the indicators that we use to measure system-level risks and how that drives our audit process, before exploring how individual awarding organisations view, identify and manage risks in relation to their qualifications and regulatory obligations.
