2021 Performance Tables (and beyond)

We’re now able to give you an update on our approved qualifications beyond 2020. This update relates to all Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 qualifications. 

We’re delighted to let you know that the Department for Education (DfE) are adopting a roll over process of all qualifications approved in the 2020 performance tables into the 2021 and 2022 performance tables.

All of our previously approved qualifications in the 2020 performance tables will appear in the forthcoming tables with the exception of one omission that NCFE have decided to voluntarily request the removal of.

No new qualifications will appear on the lists but the DfE can decide to remove qualifications at any time throughout the year should it be determined that the qualification(s) no longer meet the stringent requirements within their Technical Guidance.

Level 2 Certificate Business and Enterprise

NCFE has taken the decision to formally request the removal of NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Business and Enterprise (601/0048/5) from the 2021 and 2022 performance tables.

We encourage schools to take a look at our Level 1/2 Technical Award in Business and Enterprise. This qualification is approved in the 2020, 2021 and 2022 performance tables.

As one of our new combined Technical Awards, this qualification benefits from:

  • the ability to teach classes of mixed abilities
  • the option for learners to sit the external assessment in year 10, outside of the traditional GCSE exam season
  • high quality teaching resources including schemes of work, lesson plans, PowerPoints and much more

The last date for new registrations on to the Level 2 Certificate in Business and Enterprise will be 18 Feb 2020. This will support those learners who register late in year 11 to still gain performance points during summer 2020 as this is the last opportunity they will have to sit the external assessment during the session.

Additional re-sit opportunities will still be provided during the 20/21 academic session but any certifications made during that session will not be counted in performance measures.
