Update on Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) Transfer to RQF

Qualifications listed on the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) have been transferred onto a new framework called the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF).

As instructed by Ofqual and CCEA Regulation, CCEA Awarding Organisation will remove all references to QCF on our Microsites, documents, official reports, marketing materials and certificates. These changes will be undertaken over a phased period. The QCF vocational qualifications listed on CCEA's website will retain the same titles but without the 'QCF' branding.

The content and assessment arrangements for existing QCF Specifications, assessments and support materials will not change. Centres do not need to take any action.

If you have any queries in relation to the transfer from QCF to RQF please contact Crea McCormick, Education Manager for Skills & Business Enterprise by email cmccormick@ccea.org.uk or phone 028 9026 1227.
