Following a review of our qualifications, and in light of changes to funding arrangements and Apprenticeship reforms, we have decided to withdraw the Professional Services qualifications from 31 August 2017.
The withdrawal is being announced now so we can give sufficient notice to prepare centres to move over from the SASE frameworks to the new apprenticeship trailblazer standards.
OCR will of course continue to support and assess these qualifications up to the final certification dates:
Please note the last certification date is the last date on which OCR will produce certificates and therefore it is advised centres plan for completion of all candidate assessment by this date.
For more information please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the webpages.
If you have any queries about this notice, please call our Customer Contact Centre on 02476 851509.
