STOP PRESS: Although we had hoped that the Covid situation would be behind us all by now, it appears that centres are still facing difficulties arising particularly from a recent spike in infections. In such circumstance we are keeping the situation under review but feel it appropriate in the short term to continue the mitigations for now.  We are therefore extending the existing mitigations until the end of August 2022 by which time we’ll take further advice, and we will then issue further guidance.

As before, it should be emphasised that wherever possible all qualification delivery should be as normal as possible and any mitigations are to be applied only where essential. The new mitigation guidance is downloadable here

The latest Assessment and Quality Assurance Qualifications Guidance is available here. Please note this is a slightly revised version (16 Feb 2017) incorporating as amendment as follows:

  • P68 TQT for 'Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment' wrongly stated as 60hrs now correctly shown as 30hrs. Please amend any older version you have.

The original guidance for this qualification suite was issued by LLUK to be revised by LSIS in 2013. The Foundation in association with City and Guilds (the owners of the relevant units) refreshed the guidance to incorporate some minor updating and to allow for withdrawal of the QCF.

The Foundation has now advised all Awarding Bodies to extend their qualification registrations until 31 July 2024 in line with new date for the review of ITE qualifications.

We have additionally issued guidance on the use of these qualifications in the current context.
