All requests for a unit teacher assessed grade or a reduction in assessment from 2020/21 for the qualifications above must be made by 15 September 2021.
We are carrying over our other adaptations available during 2020/21 to 2021/22, including completing assessments from home and the use of alternative evidence. These adaptations have been reviewed and are available in the vocational qualifications area.
For verified qualifications, EQAs will continue to conduct their processes remotely with you. We will update you when EQA visits are available as soon as we can.
Assessments to be taken as normal with no adaptations
As our CPC qualifications act as a licence to practise it would not be safe to award these qualifications using adaptations or alternative approaches to awarding such as a teacher judgement. Where the assessment cannot take place safely, it will need to be delayed. Please note, the last series to sit a CPC with OCR is December 2021.
