There is no longer a requirement for Art and Design work to be submitted for moderation this year digitally, instead we are asking for teachers to assess and mark the work and then submit us a Teacher Assessed Grade by 18 June. We will be issuing further guidance on this in due course, but we would like teachers to carry on with supporting learners in the production of coursework to support these TAGs.

We’ve changed the registration date for all BTEC Nationals (2010 - QCF) to 31 August 2020.  This means you can register your learners on these qualifications up to this date.

 

There is guidance on how we work with our assessment associates on our website, with information on each of these roles, new job vacancies and the application process.

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

You must submit all of your students’ internal unit grades via Edexcel Online, usually in the first week of July. There is a ‘rolling programme’ of dates when you can submit grades and you will find this in our information manual, section 12:

5.1. Reporting Success to Pearson 

5.2. Certification Deadlines.

Pearson are always looking for those interested in becoming an external examiner for HNs (EE). Our EEs are subject experts, with at least one year of current experience of teaching on a BTEC Higher National Programme. As an EE, you will visit centres to review student work and centre decisions, centre processes, look for and share best practice and ensure quality, providing you and your centre with invaluable opportunities to develop best practice and enhance your programmes.
