We are introducing a new ‘near-pass’ unit grade for Level 3 Cambridge Technicals (2016) for students who narrowly miss a Pass on externally assessed units.
We've prepared a set of frequently asked questions to help you and your students understand what this means.
The Department for Education (DfE) has announced some students should be given another opportunity to resit external assessment(s) for Tech Level or Applied General qualifications.
Here's more information about what this decision will mean for OCR students.
Launched for first teaching September 2016, our Level 3 Cambridge Technicals in Sport and Physical Activity offer five sizes of qualification and include specialist pathways in Activity Leadership, Fitness Instructing and Recreational Assistant at Foundation Diploma (540 glh); Sports Coaching and Personal Training at Diploma (720 glh); and Sport Studies and Sport Science at Extended Diploma (1080 glh).
Your students will apply their practical skills and knowledge in preparation for further study or the workplace.
Cambridge Technicals in Sport and Physical Activity (2016 suite) are endorsed by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity.
Designed in collaboration with experts spanning the breadth of the sector, the Cambridge Technicals in Sport and Physical Activity focuses on the skills, knowledge and understanding that today’s universities and employers demand.
