I recently updated the FAQ for this new qualification.
We are pilotting this award during the current session. A number of schools, colleges, training providers and third sector organisations have joined the pilot. It's not too late to participate. The pilot runs from August 2014 to June 2015, and you can join (or leave) at any time.
The component units are available (to all centres) now but only designated centres can offer the group award. You can find out more by reading the FAQ.
Contact Liz if you want to know more.
