We can now update you on CPC assessments taking place this year. We plan to run tests in March, June, September and December 2021.
We are planning to run the CPC March 2021 series on Friday 12 March 2021. The DfE letter of 13 January stated that proficiency-based assessments should continue wherever possible, subject to public health guidance, so that students are able to progress to the next stage of their lives.
The window for making entries for the March tests is now open and closes on 19 February. Results will be issued on 23 April.
Paper-based multiple-choice tests will be available at the same time as on-screen multiple-choice tests on the morning of 12 March. The case study tests in the afternoon are paper-based.
Please be aware that it is possible that the tests may be subject to disruption due to public health concerns. We will keep you updated.
For more details, please see our FAQs.
Please note that we are including statements on the front of our question papers in 2021 to explain the following:
We can confirm that the June, September and December series in 2021 will be available as resit sessions only. This is to make sure candidates have at least three resit opportunities.
We said we would support you to make a transition to new providers. In addition to the current providers (City & Guilds and the Chartered Institute for Logistics and Transport (CILT)), Skills and Education Group Awards are pleased to be able to offer the Road Haulage and Passenger Transport CPC qualifications from April 2021. For more details see our FAQ.
