BTEC Tech Award updates

There's some good news - we are moving the submission deadline for the upload of learner work for BTEC Tech Awards in the summer series to 15 May 2024. This change applies to internally assessed components for all Tech Awards and the externally assessed components in creative subjects. This 15 May submission deadline will remain in place for all May/June assessment series going forward.

This revised deadline will give you two more weeks to run, mark and upload internal assessments, and gives you extra time to upload work for external assessments in the creative subjects.
The Learner Work Transfer (LWT) system opens on 15 April, so there’s no need to wait until the deadline to upload learner work; once LWT is live, you can upload learner work at any time until the 15 May deadline.

Due to the later submission deadline, the deadline for you to submit amended marks following moderator feedback will move to 28 June. This is an optional service available, should you choose to use it, but is not a requirement.

Please view the Key dates schedule for BTEC Tech Awards below for all upcoming dates. Some of the important dates ahead are as below:
