We've made a small change to the assessment guidance for Unit 6 in the National Subsidiary Certificate, Certificate and Diploma specifications.
The changes to Unit 6 (Supporting Children's Communication and Language) affect the following specifications:
- Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Subsidiary Certificate (600/5537/6) and Certificate (600/5538/8) in Children’s Play, Learning and Development (publication code BN033464)
- Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Diploma (600/5933/3) in Children’s Play, Learning and Development (publication code BN033465).
On page 91 in BN033464 and page 89 in BN033465, under Assignment 1, please ignore the sixth paragraph referring to assessment criteria 3A2.P2 and 3A2.M2.
In the next paragraph, the second sentence should state, 'To achieve 3A2.M2, learners need to discuss how at least 2 different theories of language development have contributed to effective practice in an early years setting’.
