We know that as you return after the break, you will be starting to concentrate on the Q-TAG process for your learners, so we hope the information in this week’s Bulletin answers your immediate questions.
For qualifications where a Q-TAG is permitted, we know you will now be focusing in on the holistic Q-TAG judgements for your learners. To support you we are releasing worked examples and an evidence record template to record the evidence used to make your Q-TAG judgements. You can amend the template, but you must ensure all of the relevant requirements/sections are covered, should we need to sample your Q-TAG judgements, or in the case of any Appeals.
We’ve also included further information on qualifications that are not similar to GCSEs or A-Levels (‘B2’), and where therefore a Q-TAG is only available as a last resort.
As the TAG process for Functional Skills is now available, we have included a reminder of the process you will need to follow should you believe you have learners who are eligible for a TAG.
