Sector news

Jacqui is a highly respected individual in the industry whose expertise is held in high regard. It is recommended that one subscribes to her Friday Round-Ups to stay up-to-date with the latest industry developments.

Have you seen Jacqui's EPA hints and tips advent calendar?

You can access it here (remember to press 'refresh' to see a door open each day).


Here is a summary from Jacqui the week:

  • I think the IfATE level descriptors chart has been updated
  •  Further education commissioner annual report
  • Consultation around the new Advanced British Standard
  • An additional data appendix has been added to the EPA data set from Ofqual
  • Professional Accounting or Taxation Technician trailblazer consultation
  • IfATE revisions and adjustments status report -apprenticeship standards
  • Ofqual delivery report covering end-point assessment. Unsurprisingly it is all about regulation, there is no mention of EQA, despite the IfATE saying that Ofqual is the EQA provider (sorry, I know I am like a broken record on this, but it does annoy me that 2 organisations involved in apprenticeships can be so blatantly operating in contradiction with each other).Ofqual annual student guide
