7 Qualification Structure BTEC 2012 differences Inside the units Main differences in terminology QCF Version Credit value Learning Outcomes NQF Next Generation Version Guided Learning Hours (GLH) Learning Aims Topics BTEC Firsts Structure and Pathways Award (120 GLH=1 GCSE size) Certificate (240 GLH=2 GCSEs size) Core unit: Unit 1 Construction Technology (External assessment) 30 GLH Core unit: Unit 1 Construction Technology (External assessment) 30 GLH Core unit: Unit 2 Construction and Design (Internal assessment) 30 GLH Core unit: Unit 2 Construction and Design (Internal assessment) 30 GLH Mandatory unit: Unit 11 Sustainability in Construction (External assessment) 30 GLH Specialist units (Internal assessment including mandatory Unit 3 Scientific and Mathematical Applications for Construction) To a total of 120 GLH Specialist units (Internal assessment including mandatory Unit 3 Scientific and Mathematical Applications for Construction) To a total of 240 GLH 6

8 Key Features of the next generation BTEC Firsts Technical pathways Craft pathways Mixture of craft and technical pathways Further popular units still available on the larger programmes e.g. Brickwork and Blockwork Operations New units e.g. Construction Technology, Tendering and Estimating and Exploring Surveying. Sequence of unit delivery and assessment Programme Design Factors Making it vocational Project-based delivery and assessment Construction Opportunities: site visits, industry links, ambassadors, etc Opportunities to involve outside agencies Programme Planning Recruitment Review Induction PLANNING Internal Verification Schedules Schemes of Work Assessment Schedules 21 7

9 Assignment Briefs Authorised Assignments Most principles of good assignment design have not changed good scenarios which link to realistic tasks that generate valid evidence that can be reliably judged using assessment criteria Learning aims are the new building blocks for assignments Tasks must facilitate learners achieving higher grades Assignments should be a distinct component not just a general part of activity Assignment Briefs top tips Work backwards from Distinction and then forwards from Level 2 Pass to think about what tasks and evidence would work Provide a scenario or context that links to those tasks don t forget to link the two together Criteria are not tasks so think about using more general language to start a task Find a balance in giving guidance not a blow by blow list and not a vague direction Be very specific about the evidence if there is observation make it clear how and when this would happen 8

10 The Assignment Checking Service Please click here for Assignment Checking Service Unit layout structure headings Unit Title Unit Introduction Learning Aims Learning Aims and Unit Content Assessment Criteria Unit Number; Full Title; Level; Unit Type; Guided Learning Hours; Assessment Type Synopsis of the unit, motivational relationships to the industry, typical learning and assessment; skills, techniques, understanding gained etc What the learner will be able to do having completed the unit through teaching and assessment Sub-titles as Topics: Range of delivery required (skills, techniques, processes etc) to meet the Learning Aims and related Assessment Criteria Contextualised descriptors of what (evidence) the learner must demonstrate to achieve the unit. To meet all the Learning Aims, all the Pass criteria must be achieved. Level 1 and 2. Qualitative improvement (grading) is reflected in the Merit and Distinction criteria. Unit layout structure headings Teacher Guidance Resources Assessment Guidance Suggested Assignment Outlines Detailed guidance on approaches to delivery suggesting methods, resources, learner activities, tutor roles etc A simple statement about what is required beyond normal resources. Amplification of scope, range and quality of evidence required to meet the unit assessment criteria. Often gives level 1 as well as level 2 advice and sometimes refers to actual criteria. Suggested scenario based activities and assessment methods, showing assessment criteria covered their links across pass, merit and distinction. 9

11 Delivery Methods top tips Facilitate learner understanding by organising site visits that are relevant to the unit content Use industry contacts to set the scenario and introduce assignments Plan a programme of units that meets learners needs whilst considering centre resources including teaching experience and expertise Consider the placement of the core Construction Technology unit within the programme as this underpins all units and helps to develop knowledge and understanding throughout the specification Link units where possible to provide a coherent learner experience eg Unit 2 Construction and Design with Unit 5 Construction Drawing Techniques Activity 1: In groups, using the authorised assignment brief for unit 2 (Learning Aims B and C), consider how this might be amended for use in your own centres Assessment 10

12 Key Features of the next generation BTEC Firsts External Assessment The Edexcel BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Award The Edexcel BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Certificate 25% external assessment. Edexcel sets and marks these assessments Unit 1: Construction Technology Paper 25% is externally assessed. Edexcel sets and marks these assessments. Unit 1: Construction Technology Paper 1 Hour 1 Hour Unit 11: Sustainability in Construction Paper 1 Hours 15 minutes External Assessment- Guidance The new BTEC qualifications for 2012 and 2013 feature an element of external assessment. We ve created a dedicated webpage to guide and support you through the various types of assessment. Please click here for External Assessment This page includes info on: Forms of assessment: Paper Based, Set Task or Onscreen? Full sector specific details and dates for assessments windows here: Please click here for Assessment Windows What will the External Assessment look like? The right amount: supports, but does not replace teacher-led assessment Always applies to one core unit Award 120 GLH Unit 1: Construction Technology = 25% Certificate 240 GLH = 25% Unit 1: Construction Technology Unit 11: Sustainability in Construction 11

13 How will the External Assessment work? Unit 1 Construction Technology provides the underpinning knowledge required throughout the qualification Unit 11 Sustainability in Construction develops an understanding of how sustainability should be considered throughout the design, construction and use of the built environment Units 1 and 11 link together as unit 1 provides an introduction to the concept of sustainability and some of the techniques used in sustainable construction Both units are paper based and carry a total of 50 marks Candidates may be required to sketch construction details Unit 11 includes a scenario for the final section of the paper Check the specification wording eg how, what, where, why Typical Multiple Choice Question Styles Unit 11 Scenarios 12

14 Typical Extended Response Question External Assessment Same grades as internally assessed units: Level 2 Pass, Merit, Distinction Level 1 Unclassified You need to make sure that your learners are: Fully prepared to sit the external assessment Entered for assessments at appropriate times, with due regard for resit opportunities as necessary Sample assessment materials will be available to help centres understand the nature of external assessment Activity 2: Using the award Specification discuss how Unit 1 (Construction Technology) supports the delivery of knowledge and understanding required for other units and vice versa 13

15 Examples of where unit 1 supports the delivery of other units Unit Unit 2 Construction and Design Unit 3 Scientific and Mathematical Applications for Construction Unit 4 Construction Processes and Operations Unit 5 Construction Drawing Techniques Units 6-10 Exploring Craft Units Unit 1 links Materials and sustainability Performance requirements, strength and stability, thermal insulation Preconstruction work, substructure groundworks, superstructures, materials, on/off-site construction Sketching construction details Reading drawings, materials, general understanding of how the craft links with other areas of construction Internal Assessment Teacher-led assessment remains at the heart of BTEC learning. 75%+ of the course is still assignments set and assessed by teachers and tutors. Clearly defined grading criteria so you and your learners know what s expected at Pass, Merit and Distinction Assignment checking service: free support service to help ensure assignments enable learners to demonstrate appropriate evidence across the required criteria. Top tips: Assessment Feedback Formative feedback Is given at the interim deadline stage Should look to encourage and guide learners to achieve higher criteria Gives a prediction of the learner s achievement based on current performance Summative feedback Given at the final deadline Is the assessment decision Gives full justification for the decision Is considered the terminal point for the assessment. It is at the discretion of the Assessor whether they will accept one further re-submission following summative assessment, and this must be authorised by the Lead Internal Verifier. 14

16 Internally assessed units Level 2 BTECs First (NQF) v Level 2 BTECs First (QCF) Next Generation BTEC First (2012) QCF Level 2 BTECs (existing) Unit 2 Construction and Design Unit 1 Structure of the Construction Industry (Learning aim A understand the work of (Learning outcomes 1 and 2 understand the the construction industry) diversity and complexity of the construction industry and know the contribution the construction industry makes to our social and economic wellbeing) Unit 3 Scientific and Mathematical Applications for Construction Unit 4 Construction Processes and Operations Unit 5 Construction Drawing Techniques Unit 6 Exploring Carpentry and Joinery Principles and Techniques Unit 11 Sustainability in Construction Unit 4 Use of Science and Mathematics in Construction Unit 5 Construction Processes and Operations for Low-rise Domestic Buildings Unit 7 Construction Drawing Techniques Unit 8 Exploring Carpentry and Joinery Unit 3 Sustainability in the Construction Industry Unit grading: rigour & progressive achievement Unit Grades Distinction Merit Level 2 Pass Mastery Model (No change) This qualification is a level 2 qualification, and the certification may show a grade of Level 2 Pass, Level 2 Merit, Level 2 Distinction or Level 2 Distinction*. If these are not achieved, a Level 1 or Unclassified grade may be awarded. Unit grades remain: Distinction, Merit & Pass at Level 2. Level 1 NEW! Unclassified (U) NEW: Level 2 qualification: includes Level 1 criteria to recognise achievement at this level. Principles of Grading Award of Distinction* (D*) D* is an aggregated grade for the qualification, based on the learner s overall performance. In order to achieve this grade, learners will have to demonstrate a strong performance across the qualification as a whole. To achieve a Level 2 qualification learners must: Complete and report an outcome for all units within the permitted combination (NB Unclassified is a permitted unit outcome) Have sufficient points across the core units, i.e. 24 points Achieve the minimum number of points at a grade threshold from the permitted combination. 15

17 Principles of Grading Learners who do not achieve a Level 2 may be entitled to achieve a Level 1 where they: Complete and report an outcome for all units within the permitted combination (NB Unclassified is a permitted unit outcome) Have sufficient points across the core units, i.e. 12 points Achieve the minimum number of points for a Level 1. Grading & Compensation Grading & Compensation 16

18 Grading & Compensation Activity 3: A learner achieves: 1 A level 1 pass in unit 1 2 A level 2 pass in unit 2 3 Distinctions in units 3 and 6. Calculate the overall Award grade The learner is awarded a Level 1 17

19 If the same learner had achieved a merit on unit 2 Unit 1 Level 1 6 points Unit 2 Merit 18 points Unit 3 Distinction 24 points Unit 6 Distinction 24 points Total 72 points The learner will now be awarded a merit at level 2 The BTEC Quality Assurance Model Wh t l l ki What else are you looking for from training? 18
