BTEC Nationals in Children's Play, Learning and Development included on initial Tech Level List for 2018 results (in England)
We are delighted to announce that the following BTEC Nationals in Children's Play, Learning and Development (2016) qualifications are included on the initial Tech Level List for 2018 results in England:
Both these qualifications meet the National College for Teaching and Leadership requirement for an Early Years Educator qualification, and Pearson is the only Awarding Organisation to offer two qualifications with a "licence to practice" which will suit a range of study programmes.
Are all BTEC Nationals in Children's Play, Learning and Development on the 2018 Lists?
The Extended Certificate and Foundation Diploma sizes are not included on the initial Lists. DfE has asked us to review aspects of how the qualification grade is calculated, and we are currently finalising these changes with DfE.
We anticipate that any amendments will not require any changes to content or assessment.
What happens next?
We will submit the Extended Certificate and Foundation Diploma for the second review process, which will lead to publication of the final Lists around Easter 2016, and update you as soon as we have confirmation of the final Tech Level and Applied General Lists for 2018 results.
