The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has published the list of qualifications where funding is being withdrawn in England. This includes 24 of our non-examined assessment Level 3 2012 Cambridge Technicals. All 2016 Cambridge Technicals qualifications are unaffected.
We have no plans at present to withdraw any of our 2012 Cambridge Technicals qualifications since they are used across the UK. We’ll help you to identify your options, including moving to the 2016 Cambridge Technicals.
Funding in England will continue for those students who begin their study before August 2020 up to their completion.
IT is one of the most popular vocational qualifications subjects offered by OCR and the Cambridge Technicals build on the legacy and reputation of the OCR Nationals. IT is at the heart of everyday life, at home, work and in our leisure time from computer graphics and control systems to communications and problem-solving, IT has an ever increasing role to play.
