Acceptable Evidence Guidance – 26 January 2017 Update

26th January 2017

In December 2016, we updated the latest version of the Acceptable Evidence Guidance for ACW.  Since then we have made the following changes:

OCR: It has been brought to our attention that it depends on the date of initial achievement as to whether a ****Final Certifying Statement of Results**** shows a Statement number (8) and we have therefore agreed with OCR that it will be removed with immediate effect as a minimum requirement.
We have also added 2 pieces of Unacceptable evidence from the interchange system which only show Test Results rather than achievement of the full qualification.
The Learning Record Service made some significant changes to the way they report qualification achievement last month. Subsequently, it has been brought to our attention that if the source of the information is the ILR or NPD then the level of the qualification will now be shown in the qualification title/aim description and not the Level field. Evidence is acceptable in this format and the guidance has been updated to reflect this.
Pearson have rebranded and we have added a BTEC certificate and an Edexcel certificate to reflect this.
CMIS: We have made a couple of minor alterations to the minimum requirements (points 4 and 5) to incorporate alternative report examples that have been brought to our attention.  Please hyperlink as above.
iSAMS:  We have added a new management information system (iSAMS) which is used within schools.  Please hyperlink as above.
