On Monday April 29th 2019, Paul Simpson, BATOD’s National Executive Officer attended a meeting of the Ofqual Access Consultation Forum. JCQ had made some changes to the regulations as a result of requests from the Deaf Education Support Forum on behalf of some professionals. However, feedback from other professionals indicated the need to make such changes immediately was logistically difficult or impossible.
