Stage 2 Extended Portfolio Deadline

During discussions at the Qualifications & Awards Board (QAB) meeting on Monday regarding the new qualification results, the board has agreed that it would be beneficial to offer an extension to all stage 2 portfolio students, an extended deadline for all portfolios to June 1 2020.

 Delegates will only be able to sit their Practical exams, oral exams and/or professional interviews if the portfolio is submitted by the extension date and you have contacted the qualifications team of your intention to submit at this extended deadline.

 If the qualifications team have not had a request in writing by April 1 2020 or a portfolio submission, delegates will be deferred to the May 2021 exam cycle and the portfolio deadline will stay as April 1 2021.
