OCR is pleased to announce that Ofqual has confirmed accreditation (on Friday 19 March) of the Functional Skills ICT at Entry Level (1-3), Level 1 and Level 2, and Functional Skills Maths at Entry Level (1-3) qualifications for first teaching from September 2010.
OCR has been at the forefront of developing functional skills assessments. This experience, backed up by extensive research and evaluation from our three year pilot, has given us a unique insight into what functionality means to assessment design. We would like to thank the dedication and commitment of the 1,700 schools, colleges and learning providers who have made all this possible.
We will work closely with Ofqual to provide them with support and dialogue as they review the remaining qualifications in Maths and English. OCR looks forward to the full implementation of our functional skills qualifications from September 2010 onwards.
