Ofqual consultation on awarding vocational and technical qualifications in summer 2020
Ofqual is seeking views on the exceptional arrangements they have set out for awarding vocational and technical qualifications, and general qualifications (other than GCSEs, AS and A levels).
Ofqual is now proposing plans for awarding vocational and technical qualifications (VTQs) and general qualifications (other than GCSEs, AS and A levels) in 2020 to:
- provide a temporary extraordinary regulatory framework for qualifications that sets out how an awarding organisation (AO) should calculate results or adapt or delay assessments
- allow AOs to provide clarity to schools, colleges and training providers about what evidence they should gather and consider, and what evidence they will submit, where required to calculate a grade
- allow AOs to make clear which learners should receive a calculated result (and how it will be awarded), or be required to complete an assessment
- enable AOs to access, adapt, or build the systems needed to issue results this summer and adapt assessments where this is necessary
