Alan Clamp, SIA Chief Executive, has released the following statement in response to a recent report published by Ofqual. The Ofqual report was published in relation to some of the licence-linked qualifications used in the private security industry. The report explains the actions they have taken as a result and what they will do next.

In response to the report SIA Chief Executive, Alan Clamp said: “We welcome this report. It is good to see Ofqual taking a close look at awarding bodies offering vocational qualifications.

“After a lengthy investigation, Ofqual has identified some areas for improvement for awarding bodies and will be following these up with further checks later this year.

“As noted in the report, the SIA already imposes a number of additional requirements on awarding bodies over and above those required by Ofqual. We will work closely with Ofqual to see if these can be further improved to provide additional reassurances about qualifications in this sector”.
