Here are some topics which are featuring frequently in questions from teachers.

In September 2020 the DfE published the technical guidance for KS4 qualifications to be included in 2024 performance tables in England. In order to meet these new requirements, Pearson has submitted the Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Enterprise for approval for 2024 performance tables.

We've retained many key features of our current BTEC Tech Awards:

  • Simple 3 component structure in most sectors
  • Much of the teaching and learning content has been retained with some changes made to enhance clarity.
  • Current Tech Awards have 40% external assessment, so no change was needed to meet new requirements.


New additions to meet KS4 performance measure requirements will include:

  • Pearson Set Assignments for internal components, released with plenty of time for preparation and assessment to suit your programme timetable
  • Mark-based and moderated assessments that are compensatory within each component and across the qualification giving learners more opportunities to achieve.

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.

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 page 23.
