Education authority in Australia reaccredits the IB

The Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) have renewed the registration of the International Baccalaureate as an awarding body and has reaccredited the IB Diploma Programme as a senior secondary qualification.

The accreditation, which is valid until 2023, was awarded following a comprehensive audit of the IB by representatives of the VRQA.

Paula Wilcock, Chief Assessment Officer IB said, "We are delighted that following the rigorous audit process the IB has been reaccredited by VRQA. This regulation gives confidence to schools, parents, students and higher education institutions that the IB provides reliable and trusted qualifications."

Accreditation and registration as an awarding body by VRQA demonstrates that the IB meets quality standards set by the qualification authority. 

The IB is also regulated by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) which regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England.
