Update on the regulated status for the Pearson BTEC International Level 2 Diploma in Art and Design

As a result of discussions with the qualifications regulator in England, Ofqual, it has been confirmed that the Pearson BTEC International Level 2 Diploma in Art and Design will be included on the Ofqual register of regulated qualifications for a limited period.

 

Which BTEC International Level 2 subjects are now included on the Ofqual register?

  • Pearson BTEC International Level 2 Diploma in Art and Design

The only other BTEC International Level 2 subjects that are now also included on the Ofqual register are:

  • Pearson BTEC International Level 2 Extended Certificate in Beauty Therapy Services
  • Pearson BTEC International Level 2 Diploma in Beauty Therapy

All other subjects remain on the Pearson Self-regulated Framework.

 

Will there be changes to the Pearson BTEC International Level 2 Diploma in Art and Design?

There will be no changes to the specification content or assessment of this qualification. This will therefore have no impact on teaching, learning or expectations for students. You can be confident that there is no action to be taken from the centre.

The only change that will be evident to centres and learners is that the qualification certificates issued to learners will carry the Ofqual logo and Qualification Number (QN) for a period of time. The change will be applied with immediate effect.

For the Pearson BTEC International Level 2 Diploma in Art and Design, all student registrations made until December 2019 will result in an Ofqual-regulated candidate certificate.

Students that take any other BTEC International Level 2 subjects, other than the ones listed above, will continue to receive their results for these on the existing non-Ofqual certificate.
