For providers that are delivering the Surveying and Design for Construction and the Built Environment Occupational Specialism Assessment, an Additional Centre Guidance (ACG) document was made available week commencing 21 March to support the delivery of this assessment. Within this are details of the building required for Task 2 Surveying.
The ACG was uploaded to the course materials section of the qualification page, which you can access below.
Our next T level Network event for Construction is on 3 May 2022, from 13:00-14:00.
Our Q&A session will be led by the Subject Advisor and the Sector Manager for Construction. The session will not follow a set agenda or format, although we will have prepared some discussion topics to get the session going; instead they are intended to be an opportunity for Technical Qualification tutors to bring their questions into an open forum. You will be able to ask us questions and seek clarification on the content and assessment of the Technical Qualification, which we'll do our best to answer and if we can't...we'll take your questions away and get back to you. You will also have the opportunity to share your ideas, ask for help/suggestions from other Providers so you can pick up some practical tools and advice to take back into your classroom.
These session are aimed at UK based teachers, lecturers or trainers who are new to delivering this qualification or those who would like to refresh themselves.
These live session will take you through:
- Planning your programme
- Reviewing elements of the core content and practical ways in which this can be delivered
- Signposting the ongoing support available to you
Two sessions below, one for the core content and one for the Occupational Specialisms.
