QCF transition arrangements


With ABE courses being accepted onto the new Qualifi cations and Credit Framework, it’s time to assess what impact this will have on your studies


As announced in the February edition of Student Focus, ABE’s programmes have been accepted onto the new Qualifi cations and Credit Framework (QCF). This new framework replaces the National Qualifi cations Framework (NQF) and entry onto it signifi es acceptance by the national regulator in the UK, Ofqual, that the qualifi cations are of high standard and make a signifi cant contribution to educational and vocational needs.


ABE accredited colleges and students can now fi nd a comprehensive set of FAQs aimed at addressing the major transitional issues in the Qualifi cations section of the ABE website: www. abeuk.com


A table of transition arrangements, detailing unit equivalents will also be put on the ABE website.


Details of ABE’s new exemption scheme, whereby a college can submit internal qualifi cations to be used as exemptions to ABE programmes, will be announced in June 2011.
