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
While the majority of OCR Cambridge Nationals appear on the 2019 performance tables for technical and vocational qualifications published 22 February 2017, Cambridge National Certificate in ICT does not appear on the list due to a wider DfE review of ICT vocational qualifications. We expect further news shortly.
Performance tables are updated at regular intervals throughout the year and we are in on-going discussions with the DfE. In the meantime, we are very grateful to schools and colleges for their patience. We recognise everyone’s need to plan ahead and we will be in touch with an update as soon as possible.
We are launching an exciting new replacement for Cambridge Nationals in Business and Enterprise.
Our Cambridge Nationals in Enterprise and Marketing Level 1/2 Certificate has been developed with the support of employers and businesses, as well as the National Enterprise Challenge, to create engaging, inspiring and practical content.
It is the equivalent size to a GCSE at 120GLH.
