During 2021/22 adaptations to assessments were available to support candidates and assessors while public health restrictions were in place. As those restrictions are no longer in place, those adaptations are no longer necessary. In 2022/23 (and beyond) evidence produced for assessments must be in line with the requirements and guidance set out in the centre handbook and units.
