BTEC Tech Awards (2022) Marking and moderation for Internally Assessed Components - training events

During these sessions, you will learn how to apply a 'best fit' approach to marking your learner's work in response to the Pearson Set Assignments for internally assessed components. The marking grids will be applied to standardised examples of learner work to enhance your understanding of how learner evidence meets the criteria. You will get a full overview of the moderation process, including preparation and submission of learner work through Learner Work Transfer (LWT) on Edexcel Online, moderator feedback and amending marks.

New events will be available soon. Please check our Training Page for further information.

We will also release a recording of the first session in November.
