Message regarding OCN NI VTQ Assessments 2021
CCEA Regulation understands that OCN NI has issued communication to centres regarding OCN NI VTQ assessments for 2021. Please note the pertinent points below:
OCN NI will support centres to deliver assessments in January, where it is safe to do so and if learners are ready to do so, so that they can demonstrate their knowledge and the skills they have acquired. If it is not possible for learners to take January assessments, we will provide the opportunity to take assessments at a later date. In the event that is not possible, arrangements will be put in place to ensure those learners are not disadvantaged.
OCN NI also recognise that stakeholders (centres, learners and parents) need reassurance about how our qualifications will be assessed and awarded this summer.
CCEA Regulation will work with OCN NI to ensure that no learners in NI are disadvantaged.
