We are continuing to develop support material for the new specifications in Music and Music Technology. There are now authorised assignment briefs for all units of the BTEC Nationals in Music Technology and we now have an AAB for Music available online. For the new Music specifications there is also some new sample marked learner work to view online. 

Entries for the summer exam series need to be made by 21 March 2017 so please do keep this date in your minds as this will come around very quickly.

Centres should now have had contact from your Standards Verifier to arrange the sampling for this year. If you have not or have any queries about this please do contact me.

Oasis Academy in Salford are holding a networking event for BTEC Music on 15 February 2017 at 4 p.m. For further information or if you would like to attend to network and share good practice please email Hannah.Dixon@oasismediacityuk.org
