These qualifications are closed for entries, but we have extended the last certification date. The final date for certification is now 30 September 2022 to allow sufficient time for centres and students to complete assessment that has been impacted by disruption caused by the pandemic.
During this challenging period, there may be some changes made to assessments to enable remote delivery/assessment and this is referred to as an adapted assessment. Guidance on permitted adaptations is available on our support centre.
This qualification recognises the skills and competences of candidates in the workplace. The qualification is for experienced practitioners who work directly with clients, disseminating information, advice, guidance and formal advocacy. Candidates might also have some managerial or training responsibilities. Candidates at this level are expected to have a more dynamic relationship with other organisations. This qualification will allow for progression to and from OCR's portfolio of related qualifications.
