Here you’ll find all the key information on vocational assessment for heads of centre in schools, colleges and other institutions offering Pearson qualifications.
2022/23 Vocational assessment timeline
Ahead of the key summer series results this August, we’ve developed a timeline to guide you through the key deadlines, roles and responsibilities for you as Head of Centre, as well as Pearson.

Ofqual checkpoint deadline 1 - 26 May 2023 – the latest date by which awarding organisations must have agreed with schools and colleges which students should expect to receive a result by 17 August.
We asked you to complete a Head of Centre declaration in February confirming the learners that you are expecting to complete their BTEC qualification in August 2023. We’ll be reminding you to keep your cohort up to date, by making any changes such as withdrawals. If there has been a significant change to your cohort we may be in touch to confirm these changes.
This is part of our work to maintain a shared view of your summer 2023 BTEC cohort. In June we will then begin to share learner-level tracking reports to you as Head of Centre and your Exams Officer for your summer cohort, so you can see if they are on track to receive a qualification result or if any action is required.
