Quick Reference


Formed in 1992 to facilitate collaboration over the development of General National Vocational Qualifications, the Joint Council consisted of the three major national awarding bodies for vocational qualifications at that time: the Business and Technology Education Council, the City and Guilds of London Institute, and the Royal Society of Arts. The Council was merged with the Joint Council for GCSE to become the Joint Council for General Qualifications, which operated from 1998 to 2003. In January 2004 it was superseded by the Joint Council for Qualifications to become the Joint Forum of Awarding Bodies. This, in turn, was superseded in 1999, when mergers between awarding bodies of vocational qualifications with those of general qualifications led to the formation of the Joint Council for General Qualifications.
