May 2019 - Critical Regulatory Update to Online Examinations!
Immediate action is required by your centre in order for learners to sit the AM20530 (Tech Award) or Sports Studies (Applied General) exams on or after the 13th May.
VTCT is implementing a mandatory Safe Exam Browser (SEB) for all online Performance Table Qualification exams. Beyond 13th May, this will also apply to all Technical Certificates and Technical Level Qualifications. You can find out more about next steps here: https://www.vtct.org.uk/ptqexams/
There has also been a procedural change to all VTCT on-screen assessments. As you are aware, learners currently login using their VTCT learner number as the User ID and a generic password. This will change effective 7th May 2019 as we implement a new, auto-generated password for each learner on each new exam. Every learner will have a unique password. You will simply need to refer to the attendance and/or learner login sheets for password details, as per the process outlined in the updated version 11 of Instructions for Conducting Examinations, section 3.6.3. VTCT online examinations.
