Cambridge Progression Maths and English assessment windows for 2014/15 are available below.
English and maths qualifications under Section 96 can be used to meet the study programmes and form part of the English and maths progression. Cambridge Progression qualifications are approved under section 96 for this purpose. A condition of the funding, requires providers to put learners without a GCSE grade A*- C on an English and maths programme.
To meet the funding condition, providers must use GCSE, Functional Skills or FSMQ. However, Functional Skills and FSMQ are seen as ‘stepping stones’ to GCSE and it is the intention that the requirement becomes GCSE only once the revised qualifications are in place. For study programmes, we position Cambridge Progression as additional support to help learners achieve the GCSE or Functional Skills threshold – so part of the programme rather than the main aim itself.
The new Cambridge Progression suite of qualifications is now accredited. They're available from Entry Level to Level 2 and focus on the fundamentals of adult learning in English and Maths - core skills and knowledge, simple assessment and a framework of bite-sized, credit-based units.
If you're considering how to fill the gap created through the ending of Key and Basic Skills, or looking for a fresh approach to supporting English or Maths in your training programmes, our new Cambridge Progression suite of qualifications could be the answer.
The qualifications have been designed for students aged 16+ and can be delivered as a stand-alone programme or provide the foundation for a host of broader programmes. In designing them, we've drawn upon our RSA heritage in building some of the UK's most respected qualifications in basic skills.
The qualifications are approved for students aged 14+ and currently recognised for delivery in England and Northern Ireland.
