Request for Special Considerations

Please make sure you’ve taken a look at our Reasonable Adjustments and Special Considerations policy so you’re familiar with what special considerations are.  If your request isn’t covered in our policy we’ll still review your application and take guidance from our regulators and other Awarding Organisations. You can find out more on our policy webpage.

  • For external assessments, you’ll need to complete this form and send it to us within 7 working days after your learner sat the external assessment or the assessment window has closed.
  • An individual form per learner must be completed unless the circumstances affected a cohort of learners who sat at the same time.
  • For internal assessments, you’ll need to complete this form and send it to us as soon as you become aware that your learner requires a special consideration.

What happens next?

We’ll aim to complete the review of your completed form within 5 working days.  We’ll keep in touch along the way to let you know what’s happening and phone you to let you know the outcome of the review.
