Addendum to OCN NI Guidance for Exceptional Arrangements 2021

The following documents support the OCN NI Guidance for Exceptional Arrangements – Assessing and Grading Essential Skills Qualifications with External Assessments 2021. As mentioned in said Guidance, which was distributed to all centres on 24th February 2021, the workbook is an externally set, internally moderated summative assessment which is required to be completed as per regulation. This should be presented unseen, and candidates are required to complete this unassisted. Whilst it is a controlled assessment, it can be performed in a more relaxed environment. Centres will have access to two workbooks per level, however, should a candidate successfully achieve one workbook, they are not required to complete a second.
