CITB NVQ Assessment Strategy Dispensation under COVID-19

Centres are reminded that CITB have issued updated guidance to account for restrictions on contact during COVID-19 and dispensation for learners displaced in the current economic climate

Please refer to the attached documents on our website:

The addendum gives guidance on the use of alternative evidence capturing that centres may choose to use, e.g. video evidence etc to allow for social distancing. The updated Assessment Strategy details the increased scope to use simulation for displaced  workers/ apprentices, so that they can still finish their qualification if they are close to completing but are then made redundant.

Any such alternative arrangements are subject to agreement on a case-by-case basis with the Pearson Standards Verifier. These arrangements are applicable until the end of the year.

Latest Qualification Amendment, Withdrawal and Extension List: 

The following list details the updated availability of qualifications, following recent reviews based on the level of demand: Please note where qualifications are amended, centre approval will be transferred and centres will be contacted when this happens.
