On 1 August 2017, Rock School Ltd (RSL), gave Ofqual an undertaking that sets out the steps it will take to secure compliance with our ‘General Conditions of Recognition’, specifically:
A5: availability of adequate resources and arrangements

C2: arrangements with centres
G4: maintaining confidentiality of assessment materials, including the conduct of specified training events
H2: moderation where an assessment is marked by a centre
H5: results for a qualification must be based on sufficient evidence

Rock School Ltd has undertaken to implement changes to its moderation process, management of confidential material, confidentiality arrangements, quality assurance, risk management, staffing, staff training and administration with a view to securing compliance on an ongoing basis with the conditions.
