About Us

The Joint Council for QualificationsCIC is a membership organisation comprising the eight largest providers of qualifications in the UK.  A list of its members can be found here.

The JCQCIC provides a single voice for its members on issues of examination administration and, when appropriate, qualification and wider education policy.  Our core aims can be found  here.

Our main objective is the advancement of public education by enabling our members to act together in:

  • providing, wherever possible, common administrative arrangements for examinations thereby reducing bureaucracy for schools and colleges;
  • responding to proposals from the regulators, Government and other stakeholders;
  • communicating with a single voice to the media and other interested parties.

The JCQCIC is a not for profit Community Interest Company, limited by guarantee.  It is funded by its members.
