Although OCR have withdrawn all of their Text Processing suite of qualifications (including Text Production and Word Processing), and are not replacing them with anything else, we believe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.
