Links to HNVQ subject guidance for 2021-22
We recently published a spreadsheet with links to the available alternative assessment subject guidance for Higher National and Vocational Qualifications (HNVQ) in 2021–22.
This is available on the Assessing Higher National and Vocational Qualifications 2021–22 area of our website, under the ‘Alternative Assessment Guidance’ heading.
Please note that not all qualifications have subject-specific guidance.
HNVQ alternative assessment approaches
We implemented alternative assessments approaches for HNVQ in 2021-22 to provide more flexibility for centres and learners.
These alternative approaches are presented in a Decision Tree that outlines the options available to centres.
This approach provides opportunities to increase learning and teaching time by reducing assessment, and supports the blended learning model that has been required over the last two years.
The HNVQ 2021–22 area of our website contains range of guidance to support centres:
- General guidance for session 2021–22 – including quality assurance
- Subject-specific alternative assessment approaches
- Enhanced subject alternative assessment approaches – including information on critical competences
We have also produced guidance on Graded Units.
