Vocational and technical qualifications contingency regulatory framework

Date Added | April 7, 2021

As part of 2020’s commitment to its members by providing online training for accountants in practice, we have provided a News Update for our members on the vocational and technical qualifications contingency regulatory framework.

A new version of the regulatory framework for awarding vocational and technical qualifications has been uploaded due to a technical issue in the previous document.

This document is part of a suite of documents which sets out the regulatory requirements for awarding organisations offering vocational and technical qualifications affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

This document sets out the vocational and technical qualifications contingency regulatory framework (the VCR Conditions). These conditions come into effect on 24 March 2021 for all vocational and technical qualifications which fall within categories A and B as defined in Condition VCR1.8.

It also sets out the requirements in relation to the following:

  • the adaptation of Category A qualifications and Category B qualifications
  • the determination of results for Category B qualifications
  • the principles to be applied by awarding organisations when adapting Category A qualifications and Category B qualifications and when determining results for Category B qualifications
