During this period, he has overseen qualifications reforms to ensure that young people are well prepared for work and higher education. He has also led Ofqual through key educational changes, such as the transition from linear to modular GCSEs and A-levels, and played an integral role in developing public trust in assessment over the years.

Sir Roger was recognised by Her Majesty The Queen for his commitment to improving qualifications and ensuring students have access to the fair and robust assessment. His commitment to excellence and dedication to the role of Ofqual has been a crucial part of its mission over the years.

He said: “I am honoured to be recognised in this way, and it is a testament to the hard work of Ofqual’s staff, who have worked tirelessly to ensure young people are well supported and that qualifications are fair and robust. I am dedicated to my role at Ofqual and will continue to work hard on behalf of students across the country.”

Sir Roger Taylor has been a key figure in ensuring that Ofqual works in students’ interests both now and in the future. His knighthood is a recognition of his commitment and dedication to the world of education. We wish him all the best for many more years leading Ofqual towards its mission of strong, fair assessment for all.
