Vocational and Technical Awarding Arrangements 2021

In this half-hour webinar, we provided guidance and support on the awarding arrangements that apply to our qualifications following the recent announcement on the policy and scope of awarding vocational and technical qualifications in 2021 and also Ofqual’s implementation of the new principle-based qualifications framework, the Vocational Contingency Regulatory Framework (VCRF).

We discussed which learners fall into scope, the overview of Category A and Category B qualifications, and the next steps.

Please note, Access to HE Diplomas will not be in scope of this new framework.
