Update: January 2022

Recent communications sent from the Department for Education (DfE) to centres state:

“There are exams for vocational and technical qualifications timetabled for January. Students who are due to sit these exams will be prepared and it is right that they should be given every opportunity to demonstrate what they have learnt. Exams and formal assessments will go ahead. Consequently, it is essential that students continue to prepare for these assessments.”

Therefore all exams, including Level 3 CeFS/DipFS, remain scheduled to take place in line with our key dates document.

We previously provided details to centres at the end of October of any adaptations for our qualifications and these are now on Brightspace. Please note that these adaptations apply to the exams sat this academic year and to the qualifications completing in summer 2022 only.

If you have any questions about the exams, or face any challenges delivering them, please contact our support team at fcexams@libf.ac.uk.

Should you encounter any issues delivering the exams and need to submit a special consideration request, please read our special consideration policy (pdf).
