Assessment through COVID-19

Updated: Jul 27, 2023

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the delivery and assessment of vocational and technical qualifications. The qualifications regulators continue to work with the education sector to support learners through these challenging times.

The Extraordinary Regulatory Framework (ERF) and Extended Extraordinary Regulatory Framework (ExtERF) were both replaced by the current Vocational and Technical Contingency Regulatory Framework (VCRF).

FDQ’s policies apply to all three of these Frameworks. We suggest that centres supporting learners /apprentices affected by COVID read our Special Considerations and Reasonable Adjustment Polices. If you would like to discuss any COVID related assessment issues, please call or contact us

Please find here a link to all FDQ qualifications and the acceptable methods of assessment under the VCRF arrangements.
