We are an education charity.
Our aim is to bring out the best in students and teachers by providing services that lead to inspiring lessons and great learning.
AQA is a leading provider of qualifications and support for teachers and students. We offer a broad range of academic qualifications for 14-19 year olds including GCSEs, IGCSEs, A-levels, the Extended Project Qualification and the AQA Baccalaureate.
We want to help every student and teacher to realise their potential. Our qualifications equip students to succeed in the next stage of their lives and are highly valued by employers and universities.
Education policy reforms mean GCSEs, A-levels and school performance measures are all changing. We are supporting teachers through this challenging period, so they can focus on their students and the transition to the new qualifications is as smooth as possible.
We also work collaboratively with teachers to create resources that are designed around their day-to-day needs.
Our Unlocking Potential mentoring programme helps young people who are facing challenges develop their skills and knowledge, increase their self-belief and raise their aspirations.
