Uncover Learner Potential

New Level 1/2 Vocational Awards for teaching from September 2022


We’ve been working with teachers and other subject experts to review and update our suite of Key Stage 4 Vocational Awards, taking account of feedback received from you and addressing changes to Government and regulatory policy at the same time.


In redeveloping these qualifications, we’ve been careful to retain the elements that you’ve told us are important including:

At the same time, we’ve made changes to support learner achievement and progression including introducing mark-based non-examination assessments that are compensatory within and across units.


We’ll be introducing new or refreshed specifications in the following subject areas.

  • Global Business Communication (French)
  • Global Business Communication (German)
  • Global Business Communication (Spanish)
  • Engineering
  • Events
  • Hospitality and Catering
  • ICT
  • Performing Arts
  • Retail Business
  • Sport and Coaching Principles

In addition, our Vocational Awards in Tourism and Constructing the Built Environment remain available.


We’re excited to share our developments with you and will be holding webinars in July 2021, following regulatory feedback, to introduce the revised suite. These webinars will be followed by subject specific events providing a more detailed look at each subject and the support available.


The date for the webinar has now passed, however you can watch a recording of the webinar below and download a copy of the slides we used here.
