In the current situation, with colleges and training providers unable to deliver face-to-face training in the usual manner, temporary adjustments have been made to qualifications which require teaching practice or assessed observations.

In consultation with the Department for Education and the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) changes have been made by all awarding organisations to enable those who were due to complete this year to be awarded.

The Gateway Qualifications versions which are affected are:

Education and Training Qualifications:

Assessor Qualifications:

These are temporary adjustments, the below information and guidance from the ETF specifies the groups of trainee teachers for whom the adjustments can be made as well as the timescales so please do ensure that you refer to these.  Additionally, these temporary adjustments could possibly change as the situation develops and further guidance is developed by the regulator (Ofqual).
