The Process Awards Authority (PAA/VQSET) is no longer an Ofqual-recognised awarding organisation
The Process Awards Authority (PAA/VQSET) has surrendered its status as an Ofqual-recognised awarding organisation.
This was a planned exit and The Process Awards Authority formally notified Ofqual in March 2021 of its intention to surrender recognition following its acquisition by GQA Qualifications Limited in August 2019.
The surrender took effect as of 30 April 2021. From this date, no qualifications offered by The Process Awards Authority are regulated by Ofqual.
The Process Awards Authority previously had 55 regulated qualifications and issued 339 certificates in the last year. We understand no learners are affected by this surrender.
A full list of currently recognised awarding organisations and regulated qualifications can be found on the Register of Regulated Qualifications.
