Although OCR have withdrawn all of their Text Processing suite of qualifications, and are not replacing them with anything else, we believe that the standard required for these qualifications was a good benchmark for desirable skills in today’s workplace. Therefore we are still providing the training for students to attain the standard required for the OCR qualifications.
