Changes to Standards Verification for BTEC Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment
Changes to Standards Verification for BTEC Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment 603/2898/8
From this academic year, 2022-2023, we have moved to a model where at least 1 face-to-face visit will be required for the qualification BTEC Level 1 Health and Safety in a Construction Environment, which sits under the WBL Construction sector for Levels 1–3.
This means, for sector-specific Standards Verification activity where the BTEC Level 1 Health and Safety in a Construction Environment is being sampled:
- One Standards Verification activity will need to be face-to-face. Other programmes allocated to the SV should be sampled/verified on the same day if possible
- Second Standards Verification activity will generally be remote unless quality issues require another face-to-face visit
- Beyond the single face-to-face verification activity, any additional face-to-face verification activities will need to be approved by Pearson prior to being arranged
NB: The face-to-face visit does not necessarily have to be conducted as the first verification activity, but if the first activity is remote, the second verification activity will be used as a face-to-face visit by the SV.
Note that the default verification method remains remote for other Construction programmes under WBL unless there is authorisation for a face-to-face visit, or the programme is sampled at the same time as the BTEC Level 1 Health and Safety in a Construction Environment on a face-to-face visit.
