What we do

We provide academic qualifications taught in schools and colleges. We work with around 27,000 teachers, lecturers, subject experts and academics, who help design our qualifications and set and mark our exams. We also work collaboratively with teachers to create resources that are designed around their day-to-day needs.

Our income from providing qualifications gets invested back into education. For example, we fund research led by our Assessment Research and Innovation teams, and our AQA Unlocking Potential programme helps develop and inspire young people facing challenges in life.

Our Assessment Research and Innovation teams aim to put research at the heart of education policy and practice. Our assessment expertise provides the foundation for everything we do at AQA. It ensures that we are able to continuously improve the quality and reliability of our assessments.
