Endorsement arrangements

The NCTJ does not have any agreement in place with publishers to endorse their materials. However should we ever enter into such an agreement the chief executive will be responsible for ensuring that:

  • we take all reasonable steps to ensure the endorsement process does not have an adverse effect
  • we publish the criteria which we used to decide whether or not to endorse a particular resource
  • any endorsement is signalled in the same way for all endorsed products (through, for example, the use of our logo or specified text expressing the endorsement) – including those produced by NCTJ or any affiliated company
  • ensure suitable arrangements are in place with any publishers of endorsed resources to ensure they do not market an endorsed resource in a way which implies that the resource contains privileged examiner/assessment insight or that its use is necessary for the successful completion of an assessment or qualification
