Closure of the Door Supervision test inspection pilot

In April this year we started a 6-month test inspection pilot, introducing additional quality assurance measures to give you added confidence in how the Pearson BTEC Door Supervision qualification tests are conducted. We asked centres involved in the pilot to notify us of any Door Supervision tests from 21 April 2014 for a period of 6 months.

The Pearson BTEC Door Supervision qualification pilot ended on 31 October 2014 and centres involved in the pilot are no longer required to send us test notification forms.

What happens next?

We will evaluate this pilot in the near future and, based on the outcome of the evaluation, we may consider extending the test inspection programme next year. In the meantime, centres will continue to receive standards verification and Quality Review and Development visits as normal.

Feedback required

We would like to thank you if you took part in the Pearson BTEC Door Supervision qualification pilot and hope to receive your feedback to assist us in improving this programme in future. Please give us your feedback.

If you need any further clarification, please email Vqtestinspections@pearson.com.
