Update: 10 May 2021 

Thank you to all centres for your continued hard work and support to your learners.

Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) Process

We will be providing details on how to input your centre grades over the forthcoming weeks; this will include guidance on how to submit these using your MyLIBF account, including screenshots and written instructions.

On-demand qualifications only (AiFE, CeFE (Unit 1 & Unit 2), LiFE and CeFCCD (Wales only)

A reminder that, if students are expecting to receive a grade (TAG) this summer, then they should be registered on the appropriate qualification. All new registrations for LiFE, CeFCCD (Wales), AiFE and CeFE top-ups, not yet processed, should be uploaded via MyLIBF by the end of day on Friday 14 May 2021.

LiFE/AiFE/CeFE (U1 & U2)/CeFCCD only - if a student is registered to complete their qualification in an academic year ending 2021, a TAG is required; these students will not be able to access exams after Friday 18 June 2021. On-demand exams by e-test can be completed up until 18 June 2021. On-demand paper exams can be completed up until Friday 11 June 2021. There is no extension to this date.

If a centre wishes to complete learning and exams after 18 June 2021, they must register, or amend current registrations, for a 2022 completion. Please note - it is the responsibility of the centre to ensure that the student has completed sufficient learning and is able to complete the exams. A centre cannot revert back to the TAG process if a student does not complete all the required exams before Friday 9 July 2021. Students who successfully complete all assessments prior to the 9 July 2021 deadline will be able to certificate in 2021, providing centres have informed LIBF and requested this no later than 9 July 2021.
