The end-to-end funding, delivery and assessment provision of Apprenticeships is changing. Implementing the reforms to Apprenticeships will require a high level of development and investment from every stakeholder involved. Given the uncertainties within the wider external environment, OCR has decided that, while we intend to continue to offer existing Apprenticeship frameworks, we no longer intend to pursue or develop any new Apprenticeship standards that incorporate changes in assessment.
We have reluctantly taken the decision not to offer Network Engineer and Software Developer qualifications at Level 4 as part of the new Digital Apprenticeship standards. While we always regret the withdrawal of any of our qualifications, we will still offer a broad and varied range of qualifications in our core sectors.
For further information on end point assessment organisations who can conduct independent assessment of apprentices, please see the register.
