January 2022 BTEC Business update

14 January 2022

Welcome to this January 2022 update and a belated Happy New Year.

I've adopted a new format to reduce the size of the update so that only the latest news is featured at the start.  There are links below to the Level 2, Level 3 and international pages which include all the usual support materials for the delivery and assessment of our Business and Enterprise qualifications.

I hope that you will find this useful.

You may have noticed that some U-TAG grades have been visible in EOL over the last week, following your U-TAG submissions and as outlined in our timelines. This is an ongoing activity that will continue until results day on 13 January, when we will have completed our quality assurance checks for all on time submissions, and you can release these results to your learners.

Any centre that has results outstanding will be contacted to discuss next steps. Outstanding results may be due to incomplete quality assurance activities (where requested evidence has not yet been provided) or where U-TAGs have not yet been provided. As previously explained, any grades affected by these reasons will not be issued until resolved.  

The BTEC Tech Award in Enterprise for first teaching in September 2022 has been included in the Department for Education's key stage 4 2024 performance tables.
