Higher Nationals Newsletter January 2022
BTEC Awards and other updates about BTEC Higher Nationals.
Submit your APMR by 28 Jan
All centres delivering BTEC Higher Nationals are required to submit the Annual Programme Monitoring Review (APMR) every year. The Review for 2020-21 academic year is due by 28 January 2022.
We changed the way you submit the Review, with each centre given a unique link to an online form. If you'd like to check the status of your submission or haven't received a link from us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your CPD options in 2022

We offer a range of training across our subject areas with the upcoming training provision for January to June 2022 live on our website.
Centre based training
