Approval for locally-devised units
To apply to add a locally-devised unit to your BTEC Higher National qualification, complete the application form below:
This is because we must work within QCF regulations when making any amendments to these qualifications. For example, we must ensure that we don't jeopardise or compromise the original structures and focus, or create duplication and overlap. For these reasons, applying to add centre or locally devised units is a long and complex process which may not be successful.
Please remember that under no circumstances should you start delivering a submitted locally devised unit without approval. To do so could, unfortunately, jeopardise your students' achievements.
