Guide to BTEC Quality Assurance
Assessment arrangements in light of Covid-19
In light of the recent announcements in relation to Covid-19 and school and college closures, we have put together some questions and answers that we hope will help explain our current plans for continuing with standards verification, and our position on assessment for vocational qualifications.
Our BTEC Quality Assurance Handbook is a complete guide to quality assurance and essential reading for everyone in the BTEC team.
Following feedback from you, we’re taking a different approach to how we present this handbook. Below you will find links to webpages containing relevant information on each of the steps of quality assurance. But if you prefer to print off the information, you can still download the pdf documents.
By providing this information on our website, you’ll be able to:
- search for the information your looking for without having to download several documents
- view the information in a different way, focusing on what’s important to you
Over the next few months we hope to continue improving the BTEC Quality Assurance webpages adding video content, animations and step-by-step guides.
For Entry Level to Level 3 BTEC programmes, it’s a regulatory requirement for you to have a single point of accountability for the quality assurance. This is your Lead Internal Verifier (Lead IV).
Standards verification is how we check you’re operating appropriate quality assurance across your BTEC programmes and maintaining national standards. External examination is a specific type of standards verification used for our BTEC Level 4-7 programmes and BTEC Level 3 and 4 Foundation Diplomas in Art and Design.
The BTEC International Quality Assurance Handbook 2016/17 is for everyone involved in delivery, assessment and verification of BTEC qualifications. Divided into chapters for easy access, it gives full details of our quality assurance processes for the 2015/16 academic year.
