Update: change to forbidden unit combination
With regards the following qualifications:
- Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Certificate in Public Services - 601/3258/9
- Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Extended Certificate in Public Services - 601/3259/0
- Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Diploma in Public Services - 601/3260
We have taken on customer feedback and we will not be introducing a new forbidden combination rule by adding in unit 12.
Therefore centres can continue to deliver unit 12 alongside either unit 10 or unit 14 as they have previously done.
This does not affect the removal of the core hurdle from externally assessed units.
We will be reviewing our full suite of Level 2 Public Services qualifications this year and will work with customers on what they would like going forward.
Please can you share this message as widely as possible with your colleagues.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.
