Measures to help learners

Impact on Qualifications

  • Functional Skills
    • Ofqual have announced that Functional Skills assessments due to take place between now and the end of the academic year need to be cancelled and given a calculated grade (pass/fail).
    • Open Awards are asking that as we can continue to provide examinations (as they are done remotely) we should continue to do so as far as possible. They have updated their FAQ for centres. Any learner who is unable to access an assessment in the normal way and who was due to sit an assessment this summer, will be given a calculated grade, so if you do have any difficulties sitting a planned exam as a result of circumstances arising from the Covid pandemic please let your tutor know.
