Qualifications: level 1 - not approved for 2014 to 2015

This publication was withdrawn on 18 June 2014

In February 2014, the Skills Funding Agency published lists of qualifications that were approved in 2013/14 but were not approved in 2014/15.

The lists have now been removed due to the start of the next academic year 2014/15.

Awarding organisations can still submit a request for a qualification to be considered to be funded on a exceptional basis, as part of the monthly approvals process, where the qualification meets the exception criteria as set out in the Technical Guidance for Awarding Organisations.
