BTEC Qualification Transfer to the WBL QA model 2020

From September 1, 2020, we will be moving the BTEC Specialist qualifications to the Work Based Learning (WBL) Quality Assurance model and WBL Assessment team. For further information please see our centre communication below.

Lead IV registration and standardisation for WBL

OSCA/Centre Standardisation Materials (CSMs)
There will not be a requirement to complete OSCA or CSMs as part of Work based learning quality assurance. However, we do maintain that for all programmes, internal verifiers and assessors (from all sites) are effectively standardised to deliver programmes to national standards. Best practice or inconsistencies will be detailed in your reports and therefore, this may impact on your Direct Claims Status if this activity is not undertaken effectively.

Registering Lead Internal Verifiers
You do not need to register your Lead Internal Verifiers on Edexcel Online (EOL). However, personnel will be recorded on your verification reports, and it therefore remains important that you have a named person to undertake this role. This again may impact on your Direct Claims Status if you do not have in place adequate resources to deliver Pearson programmes.

Supporting you with standardisation
You can still access some reference OSCA and CSMs for Introductory and Entry Level through our subject web page under the relevant qualification. If you require a copy of past OSCA and CSMs that are not available via our website, please contact us for further support.
