With Remote Large Group online (or Large Group online), the date advertised for booking is the sample confirmation date (SCD)How do SCDs work?

For Remote Large Group online moderations we request a sample of portfolios to be submitted for moderation and not the work of all the young people enrolled.

On the sample confirmation date, we will email you the names of the young people selected in the random sample, and instructions on where to send the work to. The moderation will take place a few weeks after this.


How much does it cost? 

Large Group Online moderations are subject to a minimum moderation fee of £150. The moderation fee will either be the minimum fee or the total of the per-person moderation fees, whichever is greater.
