The Cambridge Progression suite of qualifications are 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. They can be delivered as a stand-alone programme or provide the foundation for other programmes of study such as English and maths GCSE or Functional Skills.
They are approved for students aged 14+ and currently recognised for delivery in England and Northern Ireland.
We have reluctantly decided to withdraw the OCR Cambridge Awards/Extended Awards/Certificates in English and Mathematics (Cambridge Progression) Qualifications. The last date for learner entries is as follows:
The last series for paper and Computer Based Assessment (CBT) will be December 2016.
For English moderated units, the final submission should be received by the OCR moderator no later than 21 days prior to the last certification date of 31 January 2017.
You will still be able to use the diagnostic and initial assessment tools after these dates. Further details are available in our withdrawal FAQs.
Cambridge Progression English and maths assessment windows for 2015/16 are available below.
We know that funding of qualifications is a complex area and you have asked: "Is the Cambridge Progression suite funded?" The answer is yes.
Units are funded via a Study Programme.
Full qualifications are also funded, including the Level 2.
Please be aware that the Level 2 does not meet the funding condition on its own. Learners must be enrolled on a study programme leading towards a GCSE, Functional Skills or Free Standing Maths Qualification.
Age 19+ and OLASS
Units are funded, providing learners don’t already have a Level 2 in English and maths.
Full qualifications are also funded, except at Level 2, for this category of learners.
If you have any specific queries, please email our funding expert.
