Students will still need to prepare a portfolio of evidence. We encourage centres to review our guidance on the types of evidence, and evidence capture, that we permit including e.g. the use of video, photos and other digital means of demonstrating knowledge and skills.

This qualification is in scope for alternative arrangements and if required can be awarded via an assessed grade from the centre.
