NC Administration revised

We have revised the National Certificate (NC) in Administration and the new award will be available for entry from August 2021.

The current award (G99P 45) has entered its lapsing period and will finish on 31 July 2023. The new award (GR7W 45) will be available from 1 August 2021.

The revised group award specification is available on the NC Administration web page.

The revised national unit specifications are available via the website search facility. The table below details the three new units that have been developed and the units that have been updated.
