Vocational Qualifications: Information and updates

We’ve been working with colleagues from the DfE, Ofqual and other awarding organisations to confirm the approach for our vocational and other general qualifications. We have produced a summary of the assessment and grading approaches for our full range of vocational qualifications.


The information below applies to our Entry Level Certificates, Level 1/2 Vocational Awards and Level 3 Applied Certificates and Diplomas.


Detailed guidance for these qualifications can be found in the document Guidance on the determination of grades for vocational and other general qualifications for Summer 2021: Information for centres in England and Northern Ireland, published on our secure website.


We have also provided a timeline outlining the key stages in the process.
