Independent Commission into Malpractice Call for Evidence

Since its launch in July 2018, Sir John Dunford’s Independent Commission into Malpractice, has considered evidence from a wide range of educational organisations, sector leaders and government bodies. 

In order to gather the views of a wider audience, Sir John has today, Friday 1 February, launched a Call for Evidence.  The Commission is encouraging responses on the nature, extent and drivers of malpractice both in the general and the vocational examinations system.

Commenting on the launch of the Call for Evidence, Sir John Dunford said:

“Public confidence in the integrity of the examination system is paramount and there is more that can be done to reduce malpractice.  I hope that many of those involved in the exam system will respond to the Call for Evidence.

“The Commission will make recommendations to all stakeholders in the examination system, including the government, the regulators and awarding bodies on improvements that can be made to reduce and deter malpractice.  I welcome the views of all those involved in the system to inform these outcomes.”
