We have published our draft specification for Construction AAQ. This draft qualification has not yet been accredited by Ofqual. It is published to enable teachers to have early sight of our proposed approach to the Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Extended Certificate in Construction and the Built Environment (AAQ). Further changes may be required and no assurance can be given at this time that the proposed qualification will be made available in its current form, or that it will be accredited in time for first teaching in September 2025 and first award in 2027.
