February 2023 Engineering subject update
Welcome to your February 2023 update from your Subject Advisor.
As you may be aware, Government reforms in England mean that we must redevelop BTEC Nationals in order to retain funding for full time 16-19 learners, which gives us an opportunity to create a new 360 GLH Extended Certificate that could be available in all nations, studied alongside A Levels as a vocational option, with progression to employment via Higher Education.
We have created a short survey and I would very much welcome your views on potential content and design of the qualification, the link is below:
