Ofqual have launched their consultation into education resource development … this will have an impact on the way that education publishers and exam boards conduct themselves…
Over recent years one of the ways that publishers have gained competitive advantage for their resources has been to gain exam board endorsement. And this has driven relationships such as Pearson’s with Edexcel. However, in the light of many representations to Goverment and the recent telegraph expose of exam board practice, Michael Gove is looking to sever this relationship.
This will have an impact both on the way that publishers construct their courses (perhaps making them more board independent) and how they market them.
