Quick Reference


Following the Education Reform Act 1988, the NCC was established in the same year for the purpose of carrying out consultations on national curriculum subjects and advising on their implementation. A further part of its remit was to advise the Secretary of State on curriculum matters. In 1993 the Council merged with the Schools Examination and Assessment Council to become the School Curriculum and Assessment Authority, which in turn merged with the National Council for Vocational Qualifications in 1997 to form the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority.

Subjects: Education.
