Ofqual Centre Assessment Standards Scrutiny

Ofqual announced in 2019 that all awarding organisations must introduce Centre Assessment Standards Scrutiny (CASS) for all centre-marked assessments by September 2021.

This aims to improve the quality assurance controls that awarding organisations provide to centres offering qualifications regulated by Ofqual.

For now, there is no immediate impact on centres.

Over the coming months, we will confirm any changes to quality assurance activities and we will provide centres with full details of the support we will offer.

Further details are available on the Ofqual website.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact your SQA Regional Manager or email
