As part of our review of our Level 2 and 3 Technical suite of qualifications, we have made the decision to withdraw a number of qualifications. We have made this decision to ensure that we maintain the highest possible standards for BTEC qualifications. This should not impact you if you are teaching these qualifications in 2019-2020.

The following qualifications meet one or more of our withdrawal criteria, which include:

  • lower than expected learner registrations over the last 2 years
  • we are not satisfied that the qualification provides enough readiness to progress to certain industry roles and/or apprenticeships
  • we are not satisfied that the qualification meets current license to practice criteria
  • we feel that some of the qualification content may no longer be fit for purpose
