CACHE Technical Offering and Department for Education Update

As you know we are delighted that a number of our qualifications are now approved by the Department for Education (DfE) for inclusion in their Performance Tables and we have been making some changes to our technical offering in response to recent feedback from the Department for Education.

We are in the process of updating our documents and some support materials are now available. Documents which are available are hyperlinked below, and publication deadlines have been provided for those which are currently in final stages of development.

*You will notice that we will be running two versions of this qualification in the 18-19 session, so please take extra care to make sure you register your learners on the correct version for achievement in either 2019 or 2020.

Please also note that although all our changes have been agreed by the DfE the exact qualification regulation numbers may not be reflected in the DfE Performance Tables until the next iteration which is likely to be at the end of the summer.
