The MOJ seeks to use specific Awarding Organisations' qualifications in seven areas of study (English, ESOL, Maths, ICT, Catering and Hospitality, Construction, and Cleaning and Facilities) covering roughly 42% of learning delivery.

As a result, the MOJ will be looking to run a procurement exercise in order to appoint an Awarding Organisation to each specific study area. The awarded contracts will be undertaken as concessions contracts therefore MoJ will not directly pay for the services provided by the selected Awarding Organisations, but instead mandate the use of particular qualifications for successor education providers.
