Construction update - August 2022
New Site Supervision and Site Management Qualifications
The following qualifications have been updated to new National Occupational Standards and are available from 1 July 2022. The previous versions will close to new registrations on 30 August 2022, with a certification end date of 30 August 2024.
We have transferred all centres approvals, per pathway where there is like-for-like transfer between the old and new. The main change is the introduction of new retrofit pathways.
New BTEC Nationals in Construction
Please note that new versions of the specifications for first teaching in September 2022 are available from the BTEC Nationals landing page. Changes are minor in scope but relate to updated content for digital design competencies, modern materials/ technology, retrofit and some clarification about the level of understanding required in the BIM unit.
DfE defunding appeals:
Pearson has submitted appeals against defunding (16-18 full time learners) for BTEC Nationals in Construction and the Built Environment. This would apply from 2024. We expect to hear back in September.
