A note about deferring.
The final date for all NPQs to be assessed under the current contract with the DfE is March 2022. After this date we are not permitted to process any further submissions for assessment so that qualifications can meet the relevant timelines for being assessed, moderated and awarded before the contract for delivery of the current NPQs ends in August 2022.
This means that in order to still have the opportunity to achieve the qualification, if you are considering deferral, you would need to have completed your face to face events and your assessment task in time to submit by March 2022. If this is not possible you may need to withdraw from the programme in March 2022.
Regrettably, we have no authorisation to approve deferrals to return beyond that date.
