On 2 March 2022, the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) published a list of Level 2 ICT and digital qualifications where funding approval is being removed.
As part of this, from 1 August 2022, funding will be removed from OCR Functional Skills qualification in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) at Level 2 and OCR IT User Skills (ITQ) qualifications at Level 2.
