BTEC Update

Level 2 BTEC First in IT Published Resources
The First in IT Student Book publishes next week and covers 16 units, including the new Unit 1 & 2. You can order an evaluation copy and access the sample chapters on the BTEC Level 2 resource pages. You can also access sample content from the Teaching Resource Pack before it's publication in December.

Level 2 & 3 BTEC IT (QCF) LIV Accreditation
The first Accreditation Window is open with the online induction now available. The Preparation and Practice activity will be available on Monday [October 25th] and the formal assessed exercise will be available between November 15th and December 3rd.
To get started, please ensure that you have the appropriate access to Edexcel Online and register on OSCA2 against the sectors and programmes for which you are responsible.
If you are new to BTEC and feel that you might prefer to attend a face-to-face Lead IV induction session, then please get in touch and I will see if anything is being organised in your region.
You can read more about the timelines on the ICT Community Pages.
