Vocational Contingency Regulatory Framework (VCRF)

In line with regulatory requirements, a number of AIM qualifications now include adapted assessments in the 2020-21 academic year. Any qualifications that include ‘VCRF’ in the title have adapted assessments. Detailed information on these adaptations can be found in the guidance document linked to the appendices within the relevant qualification handbook. Please see below for important dates.

Scheduling

All schedules must be submitted using the AIM portal by the dates specified. All schedules are then confirmed via email with your named contact.

Results released

All results are released via email to the named contact. Our post-examination period is for 25 working days.

Online on-demand multiple choice examinations

Online on-demand assessments can be taken at any point throughout the year.
To book learners onto the assessment, centres must schedule the intended date and time of your online assessment through the AIM portal at least 48 hours before the intended date.
