Functional Skills qualifications are on-demand qualifications, and assessments can take place at any time at a centre’s request.
Where external moderation is required, the candidate work is then submitted to be moderated by an OCR examiner-moderator.
Once you have made your entries, you can carry out the assessment. Information about the assessment for each qualification can be found in the centre handbooks, which are available from the relevant qualification pages.
Once your candidates have completed units of the qualification, you can claim for their unit or full awards by making a claim via Interchange.
There are no specific deadlines for making certification claims; however, you must only make claims when you are confident the requirements for the unit have been met.
Within 24 hours of submitting your claim, you need to send the candidate work for all the candidates for whom you have made a claim to your examiner-moderator.
There are a number of methods for submitting your work; please refer to the relevant centre handbook for the available methods for each qualification.
Your OCR examiner-moderator will confirm or edit the claim as appropriate. They will then send it to OCR to process and you will get an email to say the claim has been sent to OCR.
