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

Registering Lead Internal Verifiers
Qualifications that fall under Work Based Learning quality assurance will not require Lead Internal Verifier registration via 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.

OSCA/Centre Standardisation Materials (CSMs)
Qualifications that fall under Work Based Learning quality assurance will not be required to access centre standardisation materials via the OSCA platform. 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.

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