Mitigation approaches for
VRQs & NVQs –
Covid-19

Guidance for Centres

In light of the impact of Covid-19, our overarching aim is allow learners to receive results, where possible, for the summer period so they can progress onto further education and employment without delay. We appreciate that this current situation is concerning and frustrating for you and your learners and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience as we work through the details of the processes and requirements to ensure you have everything you need to move your learners on.

We are committed to developing a process that, as far as possible, will be practical and manageable for centres, support the validity and reliability of candidate results and maintain standards.

Our Technical Advisors are hosting a series of webinars, by sector, over the coming weeks, to go through the guidance and answer any questions you may have.
