We are pleased to confirm that the Cambridge Technicals (2012 suite) in Media have been extended to the new review dates shown in the table below:
*Review date: This is the date by which OCR will have reviewed the qualification’s fitness for purpose. Please note we will have informed centres of the status of the qualification in advance of this date.
Further details about the Cambridge Technicals can be found in our Cambridge Technicals Explained document.
The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has published the list of qualifications where funding is being withdrawn in England.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.
This qualification offers understanding by empowering students to work with media products, production processes and technologies. This leads to practical and creative skills that transfer into the workplace. Unit choices cover a range of media including print, web, radio, television, film, animation and gaming.
