New Ofqual general conditions – what do they mean for you?

As a result of the implementation of the new Ofqual general conditions for recognised awarding organisations that came into effect in May 2011, we have been required to refine many of our key processes, systems and documentation. We have now submitted our compliance statement to Ofqual and will shortly be ready to implement the resulting changes.

It is likely that we will implement these changes starting in early June 2012, and we will be asking you to complete a number of important tasks that are required for you to maintain your 1st4sport recognition.

These will include expectations that you will:

  • familiarise yourself with the new, simpler Athena landing page
  • familiarise yourself with our new centre recognition and qualification approval conditions for the qualifications you are currently approved for
  • read the new recognised centre conditions, and complete and submit a compliance statement for your centre to us via Athena by the timescales indicated
  • update all your centre data within Athena via the new organisation, staff and sites tabs.

We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation through this transition and will confirm the details and the implementation date as soon as practicable in a special edition of this newsletter.
