UK schools who have offered any Pearson Edexcel GCSEs in the last three academic years will be automatically approved to deliver BTEC Tech Awards 2022 across all subject areas, therefore no further action is required. You will be able to make registrations for any new BTEC Tech Award qualification from 1 September 2022.

UK schools that offer BTEC Tech Awards or BTEC Firsts, but not Pearson Edexcel GCSEs, or offer them alongside GCSEs with another awarding organisation, will need to fill out a fast-track approval form. This will take up to 5 working days to process, dependant on internal checks.

Other UK providers that wish to offer theses qualifications will need to submit a full application, including a JCQ Centre Approval application if not already JCQ inspected (CCEA Centre Approval in Northern Ireland, WJEC Centre Approval in Wales).  

Registrations for all new BTEC Tech Award qualifications will be available to centres meeting the above approval criteria from 1 September 2022.

The registration code for the Tech Award (2022) in Enterprise is REN3.

The qualification number is 603/7063/4

The registration deadline is 1 November.

BTEC Tech Awards learners who will be completing in 2024 or later must be registered on the new BTEC Tech Awards (2022), as the legacy BTEC Tech Awards (2017) will no longer be available after summer 2023.

The Tech Awards from 2022 require entries to be made for internally assessed components as they are set and moderated by Pearson each assessment series.

The entry options listed below are for internally assessed and moderated components only, as there are no external assessments available within the 2022/23 academic year.

Component Title Unit code
Component 1 Exploring Enterprises BEN01
Component 2 Planning and Presenting a Micro-Enterprise Idea BEN02

These templates can be used in the teaching of Component 3 to familiarise learners with the way in which financial templates and statements will apeear in the exam

The terminal requirement is that internal assessed components (Components 1 and 2) must be sat either prior to or in the same series as the external assessment. So Component 3 has to be the last thing a learner does.

So, although a resit opportunity exists for Component 3, it is no longer necessarily the better of the two marks which counts - it is the last one which counts.

This flow chart helps to explain different scenarios:
