The deadline to complete the first samples for QCF qualifications was 30 April 2016. If you need to still complete the sampling all verification sampling must be completed by 31 May 2016. You will need to work with your Standards Verifier to meet the deadline and make sure that their reports can be completed by this date.

We want to continue developing the resources and support material available to all centres delivering BTEC qualifications and we want to encourage centres to share best practice as there are many centres that have innovative ways of delivering and assessing work. I would like any centres to send in any assignment briefs they feel could inspire other centres and to also send in anonymised marked learner work so that we can support centres in assessing to the standard across the grading criteria. If you would be interested in submitting anything please email: teachingmusic@pearson.com.

We will be announcing a new series of training events to support you in your delivery of the BTEC Nationals (2010) in Music specifications shortly. These will be available to book online soon so please keep an eye on any updates on our training page.
