Support and guidance for centres during the COVID-19 outbreak – Vocational and Technical Qualifications (excluding AHE)
We are aware of the challenges that our centres are currently facing due to the impact of COVID-19. Please be assured that we are putting measures in place to support our centres during this unprecedented time.
We understand that you may have questions and concerns on how to support your learners during this difficult time, and Agored Cymru are now offering on-line surgeries to provide you with up to date information from us, our regulator - Qualifications Wales as well as government. These surgeries will provide a forum for open discussion to enable us to offer advice and guidance to you.
These webinars will provide an opportunity for centre staff to raise questions and address any concerns in relation to:
- The current regulatory framework and any issues regarding the assessment / quality assurance of learners.
- Agored Cymru’s implementation of the Centre Assessment Standards Scrutiny (CASS) and how this impact on centres and what staff can do to prepare.
Please note in addition this webinar will also allow detail on the outcome of the Ofqual consultation for alternative arrangements for qualifications in 2021 to be shared.
