Updated 08 December – Assessment guidance for 2022 – an update

We’re working closely with Ofqual and other Awarding Organisations to look at various scenarios with assessments for 2022. Currently, the direction is that all assessments will continue as normal into next year. If Government direction changes on this, we will keep you informed as to any adjustments to this position.

We are working closely with education providers, employers, regulators and government departments on assessment arrangements for 2022.

We appreciate that as your situation changes you will have many questions and concerns on delivery and supporting your learners and apprentices. From Technical Qualifications to Functional Skills and VRQs, we will continue to offer guidance and support with the new alternative assessment arrangements for 2022 where these apply.
