Detail

These documents set out rules that providers of national vocational qualifications (NVQs) should follow.

Only the following parts of the code of practice are still in force:

  • expertise: paragraphs 4 to 5
  • data requirements: paragraphs 22, 23 and 24
  • application of assessment methodology: paragraphs 40 to 72
  • appendix 1: approved centre criteria
  • appendix 3: sanctions for non-compliance with the centre approval criteria

The addendum makes only one minor change: inserting extra qualifications into the lists of acceptable qualifications for assessors and verifiers.

Proposed changes

We are proposing to withdraw these rules. Read our consultation After the QCF: A New Qualifications Framework for more information.
