Response to BBC story about minicab driver qualifications

Our statement responding to news coverage about some BTEC qualifications.

placeholder

We take all allegations of qualifications fraud extremely seriously. Those reported by the BBC today in relation to some BTEC awards underline the importance of our work to expose and address weaknesses in the way some awarding organisations manage and oversee centre assessments. We have contacted relevant awarding organisations in respect of these specific allegations, and we expect them to be investigated quickly and thoroughly.
