Ensuring timely delivery of vocational and technical qualification results

In October 2023, Ofqual announced measures to embed timely delivery of results for vocational and technical qualifications (VTQ) in 2024 and beyond. These plans are designed to ensure parity between VTQs and other qualifications by making sure learners expecting results for progression receive these as expected with their peers.

Information on eProctored Assessments

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.
