BTEC Nationals in Music Technology

In March we shared a letter published by Ofqual encouraging Awarding Organisations to “consider changes” to their level 3 Applied General and Tech Level qualifications "to provide a ‘safety net’ for students who narrowly miss a pass on one or more externally-assessed units.” Since we shared the letter with you, Ofqual have published a blog post that provides more detail on the implications of these changes.

This is great news, as more of your learners should successfully achieve their BTEC Nationals.

I am also holding a short Q and A session on the new N grade online. This is on Thursday 26 April at 8.15am to 8.45am. There are 50 places available on the session.
