This update was originally published on 23 April 2021. We've now provided details on how you can record evidence. Please see the Recording your unit TAG decisions and quality assurance section below.
Further to our vocational qualifications arrangements for 2021 update, when assessment cannot be completed, a unit-level Teacher Assessed Grade (TAG) is available for units due to be completed between 1 August 2020 and 31 August 2021.
Unit-level TAGs are available to learners certificating this summer and those who are part way through their qualification but who planned to take assessment for some units by 31 August 2021.
Exams and moderation will continue to be available. Centres should continue to deliver teaching and learning for as long as possible, to cover as much of the qualification content as possible since it is important for progression.
We encourage you to continue to complete and submit assessments, considering a TAG as a last resort when assessment cannot be completed.
Please see our guidance on teacher assessed grades for information on eligibility and how to determine your grades.
