CCEA now the Regulator for all qualifications in NI

The Westminster legislation, giving Ofqual responsibility for Vocational Qualifications here previously, has been repealed. CCEA, acting in its regulatory capacity, will now be responsible for the regulation of all qualifications (including professional and technical qualifications) in Northern Ireland.

The regulatory changes will mean we will be accountable to the new Department for the Economy for policy advice and regulation on professional and technical qualifications.

All regulatory issues/queries about qualifications taken by learners here should come through CCEA Regulation. The Department is the executive department with responsibility for professional and technical qualifications regulation, with CCEA acting on its behalf in a day to day capacity.
