GUIDANCE FOR CENTRES The awarding of vocational and technical qualifications, and other general qualifications, in summer 2020

About this document This document is for those working in colleges, training providers and other settings (“centres”) where assessments for vocational and technical (VTQs) qualifications were scheduled to be taken in summer 2020. In this guidance we explain our plans for the awarding of VTQs and general qualifications other than GCSEs, AS and A levels this summer

1. We outline what we expect from awarding organisations and what centres should expect to happen over the coming weeks and months. We are currently finalising our policy following a public consultation on our proposed approach, and so the details of arrangements are still subject to change. However, we recognise that time is short and we want to give as much certainty as possible about the approach that will be taken. This document is designed to sit alongside a detailed set of Frequently Asked Questions. It will be updated when we publish the outcomes of our consultation on the regulatory arrangements for the awarding of VTQs, which we anticipate will be around 22 May.

Since the Secretary of State for Education announced that the 2020 exam series in England would be cancelled to help fight the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have worked at speed to develop a process which fairly recognises students’ work and makes sure they get their grades in time to progress. You will find on this page details about how qualifications will be awarded this summer, further guidance for teachers, students, parents and carers and an open letter to students who were expecting to be taking their exams this summer.
