    I have a candidate who is wanting to apply for the Nursing Associate programme but doesn’t have GCSE’s in Maths and English – she has the Irish Leaving Certificate instead. I have checked on ACE and I can’t see this on there but I wondered if anyone had come across this and what the decision was on eligibility? Can we accept this as a GCSE equivalent?

    Thanks!

    Is the Nursing Associate programme a framework or standard?

    There is a document which I’ve printed off from ESFA website (have tried to find the link for you, but failed) which details acceptable exemptions for standards and it includes Essential Skills (Northen Ireland) Level 2 pass being acceptable for English and Maths. I’ll keep looking, must have seen it in an update somewhere.

    Alternatively, let me have your email address and I’ll scan and send across to you.

    Regards,

    Sue

    Essential Skills (Northern Ireland) level 2 is included here in the Standards list:

    I think this may be the Republic of Ireland Leaving Certificate which is ICED level 3.
