We know you will be anxious about what the current situation means for your students’ practical endorsement grades this summer, particularly where not all planned practical work has been completed. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, monitoring visits for the practical endorsements are currently on hold. Cross-board messaging about this, including guidance on how to make decisions on student practical endorsement grades, can be viewed below:

Regardless of your centre’s current monitoring visit status, you should submit your centre’s practical endorsement grades in the usual way using Interchange or EDI. We encourage you to submit them by the normal deadline of 15 May, if possible. You must submit them by the deadline for centre assessment grade submissions (date yet to be confirmed).
We’ve summarised answers to some of your common questions about awarding practical endorsements this summer on our coronavirus support pages. If you have further questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
