To ensure that our qualifications and units remain up-to-date and fit for purpose we regularly review the content of the units within our qualifications and, from time to time, it becomes necessary to withdraw units.

There are a number of reasons that units may be withdrawn. Most commonly it is because they have been replaced by a more up-to-date unit within a qualification, or because all the qualifications they are included in have been withdrawn.

The below spreadsheet contains details of units that are currently due for withdrawal.

Units being Withdrawn

In most cases, there is an alternative unit available that approved centres can identify in Prism. Qualifications such as Progression and Vocational Studies have also had new units added which may provide suitable replacements.

Important Dates

  • Operational End Date: 31st July 2022
  • Final Certification Date: 31st July 2023

Please ensure you check your delivery plans against the list of units to be withdrawn and notify relevant colleagues of all changes.

If you have concerns about any of the units being withdrawn, or require assistance in selecting a suitable alternative, please contact your account manager.
