Practical Session 2 Update

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we’re working hard on solutions to ensure they can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we are continuing to postpone the entry period for Session 2 Practical.

Provided travel and COVID restrictions are lifted, we hope to open a booking period from 17 August – 23 August with exams to be held November - December. We will continue to keep this under review as our ability to accept bookings will be conditional on restrictions that are currently in place being lifted. Update to Applicants will be announced as soon as we can. Our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and thank you for your loyalty and support at this difficult time.
