BTEC Firsts, Technicals and Tech Awards 2022 FAQs


August 26

We wanted to share an update on the awarding of BTEC Firsts, Technicals and Tech Award qualifications.

We are grateful for the information we have received from schools and colleges and the support of exams officers as our team worked to obtain and validate any outstanding data. Thanks to the additional data received and further eligibility checks, we have been able to award a further 3000 results.

We can confirm we have awarded all results to students that have met the BTEC First, Technical and Tech Award qualification criteria and have contacted all schools and colleges with learners that are currently ineligible. We will continue to work with those centres to review queries and to confirm whether or not they expect learners that are currently ineligible to meet the qualification criteria.

Our support teams will be available if needed during the bank holiday weekend from 9am to 5pm Saturday to Monday to support students or customers with any queries.

We understand that this situation has been very difficult for students and their families. We will be undertaking a detailed review into this awarding series. Starting in September, we will be seeking input and feedback from students, schools, colleges and the wider education community. We look forward to working with all our stakeholders to identify improvements to future awarding cycles.
