We know there’s a lot of interest in the release of non-exam assessment materials for summer 2021 so we want to confirm that the release of NEA material for GCSE (J310) and AS Level (H004-H006) Design and Technology is going ahead as scheduled on 1 June so teachers can start to prepare.
There are many uncertainties about the current situation in schools and colleges but we’ve taken the decision to release the NEA material for Design and Technology to give teachers the maximum time to start to plan work with their students according to their individual situations.
We have already released NEA material for other subjects for 2021 and we want to be consistent across subjects. We will continue to monitor official guidance closely and it’s possible we may have to issue further guidance, which may include changes to NEA requirements, at a later date.
We’re committed to supporting centres to deliver NEA for 2021 and will keep you informed of any developments.
We are also running a free Q&A webinar on Monday 8 June from 4–5pm where we will be on hand to answer any questions you may have to support your delivery of the GCSE, AS and A Level non-exam assessment. If you are unable to attend, there will also be a recording of the session available.
