New QCF ESOL qualifications for 2015
Our new QCF English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) qualifications have been accredited by Ofqual and are now available for registration.
They will completely replace NQF ESOL qualifications in 2015.
As part of this development, we've taken the opportunity to update and further improve the content of our ESOL qualifications - providing your learners with the very best opportunity to improve their English language skills.
To ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible for your centre, please refer to the information below.
Key dates for the current NQF ESOL qualifications
- After 31 December 2014, we can no longer accept new registrations for NQF ESOL qualifications.
- If you have learners currently undertaking NQF ESOL qualifications, please arrange for them to complete their final assessment before 30 April 2015.
- The last certification date for NQF ESOL qualifications is 30 June 2015.
- If your most recent Standards Verifier visit for ESOL resulted in certificate release, you will be auto-approved to offer all QCF ESOL qualifications. If this does not apply to your centre, please apply for approval in the usual way.
If you have any queries which haven't been covered in the FAQs, please contact us.
We look forward to continuing to work with you to support the delivery of ESOL qualifications at your centre.
