Commenting on the announcement by Ofqual, Nansi Ellis, Assistant General Secretary of the National Education Union, said:
"The NEU recognises that the Vocational and Technical Qualification landscape is very complex and Ofqual are right to say that one form of assessment will not fit all.
'Schools and colleges will need the detail of what Ofqual proposes as soon as possible to ensure that students and teachers have the confidence and clear guidance on how to proceed.
'The NEU is working with Ofqual to get as much detail as possible for our members and to make sure that processes are fair for students and staff".
