The project to set up a framework for working with Awarding Organisations is progressing well. In January the steering group ran a supplier day in London. A variety of suppliers attended either the morning or afternoon session and there was a great deal of discussion about the project which was been extremely valuable to the group.

While work continues on the structure and scope of the project, there will be further engagement activities with Awarding Organisations and other key stakeholder groups. Our next significant milestone will be Customer Engagement days which CCS are currently organising. The initial intention is to set up two events, one in the north and one in London, if these events quickly fill up we will organise further events to accommodate requirements. The engagement events will be vital for the steering group to work with the sector to fully understand your diverse needs and requirements and to discuss what the final framework needs to consider. We will keep members informed once the dates have been finalised and would encourage participation to help ensure that what the project delivers will meet your needs.

The project steering group consists of representatives from CCS, AoC, CPC and a number of colleges. If you have any questions CCS has established a dedicated email address which Awarding Organisations, Colleges and other stakeholders can use: [email protected]. We are very grateful for any questions or comments that you have regarding this important project.
