Guidance for Health and Social Care and Child Development and Wellbeing Qualifications
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has resulted in disruption to education and training during spring and summer 2020. National/Local restrictions are likely to be in place during 2020/21, and further disruption may occur.
Due to continued requirements to adhere to social distancing and restrictions this may affect either learner or assessor access to employer sites.
Awarding Organisations are working collaboratively with Ofqual, Qualification Wales and CCEA and with the relevant workforce regulators in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to agree on the proposed mitigations, for qualifications in Health and Social Care and Child Development and Wellbeing Qualifications.
