Our main VCRF information page explains the new regulatory framework and how our qualifications are grouped into the relevant categories.

Important Dates

Non examined assessments (coursework, portfolio etc) have no changes to the format, date or timescales for the release of results. The quality assurance process aligns with the usual approach that all claims will have a sample of evidence requested or will be through direct claims status (AIVs have been informed of their requirements in this case).

Retention of evidence

You must retain all evidence for claims involving a Teacher Assessed Grade for at least 6 months or after an appeal (whichever is later). This can be retained electronically.
