In August 2021, we updated you on the new Ofqual regulations, which require all awarding organisations to follow the same standards for Centre Assessment Standards Scrutiny (CASS).
All awarding bodies, including OCR, are committed to making sure everyone can trust that students’ awards provide an accurate reflection of their skills, knowledge and assessment performance in the subjects they undertake.
The new standards detail how we should quality assure the assessment decisions made by centres. To comply with these new standards, we've reviewed and updated the following sections of the centre handbooks for our vocational qualifications:
See the 'Key updates to this handbook' section at the front of each centre handbook for a full list of what we've updated.
We have not changed the content or structure of our qualifications.
