Following feedback from you, we’re taking a different approach to how we present this handbook for 2016/2017. Below you will find links to webpages containing relevant information on each of the steps of quality assurance. But if you prefer to print off the information, you can still download the pdf documents.

By providing this information on our website, you’ll be able to:

  • search for the information your looking for without having to download several documents
  • view the information in a different way, focusing on what’s important to you

Over the next few months we hope to continue improving the BTEC Quality Assurance webpages adding video content, animations and step-by-step guides.

To deliver and assess your BTEC programme effectively, it’s important that you have a strong team in place at your centre.
