Qualification specific guidance

Detailed guidance on acceptable adaptations to assessment

Guidance on how to support your learners through assessment.

Detailed information for each assessment element of our qualifications.

 

How to use this page

The table below provides an overview of where we have identified:

  • qualifications can be delivered as outlined in the assessment specification ('No adaption required')
  • changes you can make to the standard assessment methodology to allow learners to complete their qualification during a period of disruption to your normal way of working (click the 'Adaption guidance' link)
  • assessment cannot take place unless it can be delivered as outlined in the assessment specification ('No suitable adaptations identified').

Where the final column indicates 'Occupational Competence', assessments may continue providing that:

  • learners are ready for assessment
  • assessments take place in line with local public health measures
  • any additional subject specific guidance published by YMCA Awards is followed.

This information should be used alongside the qualification syllabus and general guidance in the 'How to adapt' section of our Coronavirus Support Hub. You will need to be logged into our website to view qualification syllabuses.
