    I have a student who came to college with ICCE General Certs in Maths and English. These don’t seem to easily fit within the list of qualifications that can count as equivalent to GCSE in order to meet the condition of funding, but I cannot get final answer from DfE or ESFA on this matter. I do have a letter from DfE dating from 2015 (when the student started studying the ICCE courses) that they were equivalent to GCSE, but ESFA are stating that this is not valid! We are well within the 5% tolerance on Maths/English condition of funding this year, but I have applicants for next year with the same qualifications so need to confirm their validity.
    If you have students arriving with ICCE qualifications do you count them as equivalent to GCSE?

    Hi Jackie

    if it aint on the list, it aint getting exempted…

    Had a similar one here with Middle Years International Baccelaureate, which is *sort of* FL2 equivalent, but not on the list.

    Particularly where they have been gained in the UK, rather than overseas, the learner doesn’t meet CoF, so they need to do Functional Skills at least.
