Join us in London, Coventry or Leeds and discover everything you need to know about Cambridge Nationals and Cambridge Technicals.
Cambridge Nationals are the successor to OCR Nationals, available in a range of engaging subjects that are equivalent in size to GCSEs. The most popular subjects are recognised in DfE performance tables and Progress 8 measures. They provide an excellent start for vocational study and enable progression to Level 3 vocational qualifications, such as our Cambridge Technicals, A Levels or Apprenticeships
You may have seen the latest DfE list which was published on 12 May 2017. This updated list includes qualifications which were submitted in January 2017 and approved during April 2017.
As previously advised, as a result of the DfE review of ICT Technical Awards and our consultation with schools, employers and other qualification users, we decided to bring forward our redevelopment plans and launch a brand new qualification which we submitted to the DfE in March 2017.
A further update to the performance tables for ICT qualifications which were submitted in March including our brand new Cambridge Nationals Certificate in Information Technologies is expected soon.
In the meantime, find out more about Cambridge Nationals in Information Technologies by downloading the draft specification and draft sample assessment materials.
We’re delighted to confirm that our Cambridge Nationals in Enterprise and Marketing Level 1/2 Certificate was included on the recently updated technical and vocational performance tables for reporting in 2019 under Tech Award category.
Developed with the support of employers and businesses, as well as the National Enterprise Challenge to create engaging practical content, our innovative qualification is ready for you to teach this September 2017.
It is the equivalent size to a GCSE at 120GLH and fits into a study programme at Key Stage 4.
