BTEC Tech Awards
The skills to succeed - the confidence to progress
Clarification on BTEC assessment expectations during Covid-19
For BTEC Level 3 Nationals, BTEC Level 1 and 2 Firsts and Tech Awards, where we expect to be able to calculate grades, we do not require or expect any formal assessment for BTEC to take place while learners are studying at home.
Update on redeveloped BTEC Tech Awards for first teaching from September 2022
BTEC Tech Awards are new Key Stage 4 BTECs, designed specifically for 14-16 year olds in schools.
Our BTEC Tech Awards are designed to be taught alongside GCSEs, giving your students a glimpse into a professional sector whilst teaching them transferable skills for life. They:
- are specifically designed for 14-16 year olds in schools
- are graded across Level 1 and Level 2 to recognise the achievements of all students
- are assessed using assignments and practical tasks to suit vocational students
- count in the 'open group' of Progress 8.
