Vocational Qualifications Contingency Regulatory Framework (VCRF)

Ofqual published its Vocational Qualifications Contingency Regulatory Framework (VCRF) on 24 March 2021 which will remain in place until at least 31 August 2021. VCRF conditions and guidance

Qualifications Wales will shortly publish a version of the VCRF that will apply to qualifications delivered in Wales during the same period. The VCRF will replace the Extended Extraordinary Regulatory Framework (EERF) that came into effect on 6 October 2020.
