Lead IV Registration and Standardisation

It is important for your centre to register a Lead Internal Verifier (LIV) for each BTEC qualification and complete the centre standardisation materials (CSM's) before 4 November deadline. The video below will explain how to do this. Tech Awards (first teach Sept 2022) will not require a LIV registration
