Internal assessments will go ahead in 2021/22, therefore moving away from results being based on Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs).

Students need to prepare a portfolio of evidence.

We encourage centres to review our guidance and the guidance from the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) 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.
