HNVQ subject-specific assessment guidance 2020-21

We are currently publishing a range of revised subject-specific assessment guidance for Higher National and vocational qualifications.

This relates to Higher National Certificates and Diplomas, Professional Development Awards, National Progression Awards, National Certificates, Skills for Work, Awards and internally-assessed NQ Units.

This is part of the alternative assessment approach being used for these qualifications in 2020-21, which is distinct from the Alternative Certification Model being used for National Qualifications.

The spreadsheet on the page below shows which subjects have revised guidance available, and provides links to the guidance where applicable:

The guidance is also available on the relevant subject pages.
