We have templates, forms and guides to help you save time and fulfil your part in the BTEC assessment and verification process with ease.

You’re welcome to use your own forms and templates, but it may be worth referring to ours to ensure you’ve got the essentials covered. 

You will find:

  • assessment and verification forms
  • employer involvement forms
  • higher national forms

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

Following learner certification, assessment records (feedback sheets) and the associated internal verification documentation need to be kept for a minimum of three years.

This is taken from the BTEC Centre Guide to Internal Assessment which has a detailed section on retention of learner work and assessment records on pages 16 and 17.
