EOA Mission Statement

The EOA is an independent, not for profit professional body and registered charity whose key role is to support the professional development of all exam office personnel working in centres throughout the UK and abroad, so they can support an exam system that will benefit all learners.



  • We help our members in promoting the importance of this role to the whole education community so that the exam office can support the delivery of an effective and efficient examination system for the benefit of all learners.
  • Our members have access to information, resources & a strong peer support grass roots network, to help in their day-to-day work.
  • We ensure our members’ views are heard by government, Ofqual, JCQ, FAB, awarding organisations, MIS providers and SLTs through regular surveys and targeted feedback.


The EOA was created in 2000 to help lobby for better services and support for the exams office community. In 2005 a formal professional body was set up to continue that work and eventually replace government investment and engagement over the past seventeen years. The objective has always been to encourage any support and services that will not only provide core services but represent the exam office community effectively.
