Construction - Key Stage 4 performance tables (2020 results) in England
Here is a quick update on the KS4 performance tables in 2020 for Construction qualifications.
Teaching Construction at Key Stage 4?
We’ve just received feedback from the DfE: they’ve not yet approved either the BTEC First Award or the BTEC Tech Award in Construction for performance tables in England (2020 results).
BTEC First Award in Construction
The DfE has asked us to make further changes to the BTEC First Award in Construction so it meets their criteria for inclusion on performance tables in England (2020 results). We’re already working on the changes and we’ll be re-submitting the updated qualification to the DfE in early June 2018.
We hope to hear from the DfE by mid July whether they will be including this BTEC First Award in performance tables (2020 results), although the DfE hasn’t yet confirmed a feedback date.
BTEC Tech Award in Construction
After careful consideration and due to the extent of changes required, we’ve decided not to re-submit the BTEC Tech Award in Construction, and have decided to withdraw this qualification. We will send official notification of this and update our website before the end of the summer term 2018.
What can I teach in September 2018?
You can continue to offer the BTEC First Award in Construction, which is included on performance tables in England for 2019 results. However, we do not yet have confirmation from the DfE that they will approve it for 2020 Lists.
We will let you know as soon as we hear from the DfE.
