As per the latest Government Guidelines, the formal and legally required restrictions will be removed from 19th July 2021 and the onus will be upon personal responsibility for ongoing protection.
Whilst the continuing pandemic has led to many assessments being cancelled, on the 25 February 2021, the Government announced the policy on awarding vocational and technical qualifications in England in 2021 which included confirmation that:
From Monday 23 November, customers will be able to schedule eProctored assessments, allowing remote invigilation for the first time.
Remote invigilation via eProctoring allows learners to complete their YMCA Awards externally assessed exams at home without a member of centre staff overseeing the assessment. Instead, the learner uses their webcam and smartphone to record what they do during the exam so that we can verify they have met assessment conditions.
Yesterday (Thursday 13 August) many learners across England, Wales and Northern Ireland will have received results for their A Levels, BTECs, Technical Certificates and other vocational qualifications.
At YMCA Awards we do not issue results for our qualifications on a specific date each year but we have now printed and dispatched all certificates claimed and quality assured whilst the team have been working from home. This is to ensure that, wherever possible, learners can receive their YMCA Awards certificate with their results for other qualifications.
