Cambridge Progression Maths and English assessment windows for 2014/15 are available below.
Thank you to our customers who completed The Education Training Foundation (ETF) survey in support of Cambridge Progression.
The acquisition of underpinning skills is the purpose of qualifications designed to provide stepping stones to GCSE or Functional Skills, like OCR’s Cambridge Progression qualifications, which received an explicit mention on page 14 of the ETF report.
We are working through SFA approval to ensure it remains eligible for funding in 2015/16. Under the current SFA rules, Entry level and Level 1 are eligible for funding if they are qualifications over 3 credits or 30 GLH.
Under the EFA rules, there is no change.
The Association of Colleges (AOC) state ‘that it is highly unlikely that decisions concerning nominated qualifications will be made before the start of the 2015/16 academic year, so DfE recommends that FE providers plan on the basis that English and maths qualifications approved for teaching to 16 to 19-year-olds under the condition of funding in 2015/16 will be the same as those approved for the 2014/15 academic year, as set out in published guidance.’
All of the Cambridge Progression Qualifications are still funded.
The new Cambridge Progression suite of qualifications are now 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.
The qualifications 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.
The qualifications are approved for students aged 14+ and currently recognised for delivery in England and Northern Ireland.
