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
We have received feedback from the DfE about the Cambridge National Certificate in ICT and the 2019 performance tables for technical and vocational qualifications. As a result of their review of ICT Technical Awards, the DfE have asked for some changes to be made to the Cambridge National Certificate in ICT, prior to inclusion in the 2019 performance tables. Over the next month we will be continuing our discussions with the DfE, whilst working on the changes and bringing forward some of our ICT development plans.
We want to ensure that this qualification is right for you and your students, ready for September 2017 teaching. Over the next couple of weeks we will be busy working with schools and colleges as well as employers for feedback on the changes we are making.
Updated 2019 performance tables will be released by the DfE in May 2017 and again in August 2017. We recognise how important it is for you to plan ahead and we will keep you updated with the latest news relating to this qualification.
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.
