The Skills Funding Agency (SfA) continues to review all qualifications it funds, to ensure that all publicly funded qualifications meet government’s expectations, including minimum size, take-up of learners, recognition by centres and employers and a clearly written purpose statement.
OCR are working with the SfA to submit these qualifications against these new criteria to ensure they remain fundable in 15-16. The list of SfA funded qualifications can be located on the SfA website and is updated quarterly.
If you would like to provide recognition for these qualifications to support our submission to the SFA and future DfE submissions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any queries in regards to this notice please contact email@example.com.
