Arrangements for vocational and technical assessments in 2021 confirmed

Ofqual, the watchdog responsible for regulating qualifications, has confirmed its decision on arrangements for vocational and technical assessments in 2021.

The decisions have been made following considerable consultation with training providers and take into account the disruption to learning due to coronavirus outbreak.

The statement said: “We consulted on proposals to permit awarding organisations to make adjustments to their  qualifications and assessments, which took account of the different ways in which the qualifications are used – ranging from those taken alongside, or instead of general qualifications, to those used to signal occupational competency.”
