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 30 September deadline. The video below will explain how to do this. Tech Awards (first teach Sept 2022) will not require a LIV registration

BTEC Tech Awards 2022

The new Tech Awards (first teach Sept 2022) require a different approach to quality assurance. Check out our centre guides and bitesize videos below for further information.
