OCR is currently reforming its general qualifications in line with the government programme of reform. However, we have made the difficult decision not to redevelop the Level 1/2 Certificate in Living Texts. Centres may wish to consider our newly accredited English qualifications, GCSE (9-1) English Language (J351) and GCSE (9-1) English Literature (J352), which are available from first teach from September 2016.
From summer 2017, Living Texts will be converted into a transition scheme of work to support the GCSE (9-1) English Language (J351) and GCSE (9-1) English Literature (J352) qualifications. To find out more, email OCR.LivingTexts@ocr.org.uk.
OCR is pleased to announce a brand new and exciting qualification for English - Living Texts. We have developed this qualification in response to requests from centres. The Level 1 and 2 Certificate in Living Texts has been designed to generate a lifelong passion for reading in learners and to develop skills that will transfer readily to the world beyond the classroom.
