External Assessment 2021/22
Last updated: 4 January 2022
Today we sent an update to centres, as we are aware that some of you may have questions about how to manage the BTEC assessments scheduled to take place this month and into February, in light of the ongoing disruption caused by Covid-19.
For more information read the VQ Bulletin
Please be assured we've been working closely with schools and colleges, and there are contingency plans already in place.
We have updated our guidance (PDF | 131 KB) to support the continuation of timetabled BTEC assessments from January.
We have also created an infographic (PDF | 77.5KB) to guide you in managing absences, in relation to learners taking external assessments. We will keep you updated with any decisions relating to this, and any additional guidance that is released to support centres, should a policy change occur.
