Following a review of our portfolio and changes to market demand, we have made the difficult decision to withdraw the Cambridge National Diploma in Health and Social Care, at both Levels 1 and 2.
We will of course continue to support and assess these qualifications up to the conclusion of the final assessment opportunity, which will be June 2019. No resit opportunity will be available.
The last opportunity for year 10s to start a two year programme was September 2017. New candidates should not be started on this qualification.
OCR is still offering the Cambridge National Award (J801) and Certificate (J811) in Health and Social Care. The review dates for these qualifications have recently been extended to 30 September 2022.
Units R024 and R030 will no longer be used towards the certification of the Level 1/2 Cambridge National Certificate in Health and Social Care (J811) after the June 2019 series.
If you intend to use R024 or R030 towards the Level 1/2 Cambridge National Certificate in Health and Social Care (J811), please ensure your students complete the full qualification and you make your certification/cash-in entry by the June 2019 series.
Our Cambridge National in Health and Social Care introduces students to the specialist knowledge and skills needed to work in various care settings. Underpinning the qualification is a focus on core values and communicating with individuals so as to maintain their dignity and sense of being valued.
