Assess your options
Cambridge Technicals are vocational qualifications at Level 2 and Level 3 for students aged 16+. They can be offered alongside A Levels as part of a balanced curriculum.
Changes to funding
In July 2019 the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) published it's list of qualifications where funding is being withdrawn in England. This includes 24 of our non-examined assessment Level 3 Cambridge Technicals (2012).
As a result the last date for new starts on the Level 3 Cambridge Technicals in Health and Social Care that have no external assessment is the 31st of July 2020 (note that the Certificate sized qualification continues to be funded). If you're currently delivering non-examined Cambridge Technicals (2012) or the equivalent BTECs and want to continue to offer Level 3 recognised vocational qualifications as part of a study programme, you can very easily move to a Level 3 Cambridge Technicals (2016). These externally examined Level 3 vocational qualifications are unaffected by funding changes.
We have no plans at present to withdraw any of our 2012 Cambridge Technicals qualifications since they are used across the UK. We’ll help you to identify your options, including moving to the 2016 Cambridge Technicals.
