FAQs

Here are the answers to some of the questions we are currently being asked. You can also find detailed information about each of the qualifications by following the subject links on the right side of the page. Also, feel free to contact me using the details above.

Because the artwork throughout the course can be submitted for assessment, it is considered 'live' until results day and review of marking and moderation has taken place in the students final year. As such, it is important that the artwork is kept secure until these dates as per JCQ regulations.

However, it is important to celebrate the students' work and you may hold an exhibition of artwork post-moderation. Many centres put up the artwork for moderation and then directly afterwards open this up to the public.

Any centres holding such an exhibition must regard all the work as still being 'live' and ensure that the exhibition is invigilated and that work remains secure. If work is taken out of secure conditions and a centre subsequently wishes to apply for review of marking and moderation after results day, this process could be compromised by loss of or damage to work that was in the sample. 

The school must also consider how to reduce the risk of photographs of the exhibition appearing on social media accounts of visitors, as this would breach JCQ regulations. 

A Level and GCSE

JCQ guidelines  require that 'live' work is kept secure until results day and review of marking and moderation (RoMM) dates have taken place.

If work is taken out of secure conditions and a centre subsequently wishes to apply for a review of marking and moderation after results day, this could be compromised by loss of or damage to work that was in the sample. 

'When can marked work be removed from secure storage?

Internally assessed work that is not required for the moderation sample and work returned to centres after moderation must be stored securely until all possible post-results services have been exhausted. If post-results services have not been requested, internally assessed work may be returned to candidates after the deadline for requesting a review of results for the relevant series. If post-results services have been requested, internally assessed work may be returned once the review of results and any subsequent appeal has been completed.'

BTEC

Original learner evidence must be kept current, safe, and secure for 12 weeks after learners have been certificated.

Please note that the 12 weeks starts once the certificates have been received by the centre.

Due to the nature of the evidence produced for Art & Design practical work, this can be good quality photos or videos rather than the original evidence.

Whether you're new to delivering BTEC, or already offer our qualifications, the 'Delivery BTEC' page outlines how our BTEC processes and delivery cycle work. The steps will walk you through the different stages of delivery and provide handy guidance for the different topics.

We’ve prepared some templates, forms and guides to help you save time and fulfil your role in the BTEC assessment and verification process.

All of the 2023-2024 key dates for BTEC Tech Awards (2022) have been published and are available online. Please note, we are now releasing the Pearson Set Assignments (PSAs) earlier to give you more time to teach.
