September 2022 BTEC Performing Arts update
I hope that the autumn term is going well so far.
Here is your late September 2022 update with all the latest news for BTEC Performing Arts teachers.
In this update you will find:
- Post results services reminder
- BTEC Registration deadline
- Grade boundaries for externally assessed BTEC units
- Winter 2023 (January/February) exam timetables
- Past papers from summer 2022 series
- New Exemplar Standardisation Materials for BTEC Tech Award in Performing Arts 2022
- VQ bulletins

- Tech Award in Performing Arts (2022) Marking and Moderation events
- Support and Contact
Exam timetables for winter 2023 series are published and accessible from the link below (including Units 1 and 7 for BTEC Nationals). The summer timetables, covering tasks being released between January and June 2023, will be released later this term.
In each standardisation pack, there are three examples of low, medium and high marked work.
The VQ Bulletin is a consolidated briefing from Pearson, which contains all the key updates you need about our vocational qualifications. A summary of the latest news, and status of qualifications, with links to our web pages where you can find more detail, it's the easiest and most comprehensive and up-to-date source of what is happening for Pearson vocational qualifications.
During these sessions, you will learn how to apply a 'best fit' approach to marking your learner's work in response to the Pearson Set Assignments for internally assessed components. The marking grids will be applied to standardised examples of learner work to enhance your understanding of how learner evidence meets the criteria. You will get a full overview of the moderation process, including preparation and submission of learner work through Learner Work Transfer (LWT) on Edexcel Online, moderator feedback and amending marks.
New events will be available soon. Please check our Training Page for further information.
We will also release a recording of the first session in November.
