8 What are BTEC Level 3 qualifications? The BTEC qualifications in this specification are undertaken in further education, by sixth-form colleges, schools and other training providers, and have been since they were introduced in Their purpose, approaches to teaching, learning and assessment are established and understood by teaching professionals, employers and learners alike. The BTEC qualifications in this specification have been revised to fit the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). The revised titles are: l Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Applied Science (QCF) l Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Applied Science (QCF) l Edexcel BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma in Applied Science (QCF) l Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Applied Science (QCF) l Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Applied Science (QCF). They maintain the same equivalences, benchmarks and other articulations (for example SCAAT points, UCAS Tariff points) as their predecessor qualifications. The table below identifies the titling conventions and variations between the old (NQF) and new (QCF) qualifications: Predecessor BTEC Nationals (accredited 2007) Not applicable Edexcel Level 3 BTEC National Award Not applicable Edexcel Level 3 BTEC National Certificate Edexcel Level 3 BTEC National Diploma QCF BTEC Level 3 qualifications (for delivery from September 2010) Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Certificate Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma Edexcel BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Diploma Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma The BTEC qualifications in this specification are QCF level 3 qualifications designed to provide highly specialist, work-related qualifications in a range of vocational sectors. They give learners the knowledge, understanding and skills that they need to prepare for employment. These qualifications accredit the achievement for courses and programmes of study for full-time or part-time learners in schools, colleges and other training provider organisations. The qualifications provide career development opportunities for those already in work, and progression opportunities to higher education, degree and professional development programmes within the same or related areas of study, within universities and other institutions. The BTEC qualifications in this specification provide much of the underpinning knowledge and understanding for the National Occupational Standards for the sector, where these are appropriate. They are supported by the relevant Sector Skills Councils (SSCs) and/or Standards Setting Bodies (SSBs). Certain BTEC qualifications are recognised as Technical Certificates and form part of the Apprenticeship Framework. They attract UCAS points that equate to similar-sized general qualifications within education institutions within the UK. On successful completion of a BTEC level 3 qualification, a learner can progress to or within employment and/or continue their study in the same, or related vocational area. It should be noted that the titling conventions for the revised QCF versions of the BTEC Firsts have also changed; see the relevant BTEC specifications on our website (www.edexcel.com). The QCF is a framework which awards credit for qualifications and units, presents qualifications in a way that is easy to understand and measure. It enables learners to gain qualifications at their own pace along flexible routes. 2

9 There are three sizes of qualification in the QCF: l Awards (1 to 12 credits) l Certificates (13 to 36 credits) l Diplomas (37 credits and above). Every unit and qualification in the framework has a credit value. The credit value of a unit specifies the number of credits that will be awarded to a learner who has achieved the learning outcomes of the unit. The credit value of a unit is based on: l one credit for learning outcomes achievable in 10 hours of learning l learning time is defined as the time taken by learners at the level of the unit, on average, to complete the learning outcomes of the unit to the standard determined by the assessment criteria l the credit value of the unit remaining constant in all contexts, regardless of the assessment method used for the qualification(s) to which it contributes. Learning time should address all learning (including assessment) relevant to the learning outcomes, regardless of where, when and how the learning has taken place. Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Certificate 30 credits The 30-credit BTEC Level 3 Certificate offers a specialist qualification that focuses on particular aspects of employment within the appropriate vocational sector. The BTEC Level 3 Certificate is a qualification which can extend a learner s programme of study and give vocational emphasis. The BTEC Level 3 Certificate is broadly equivalent to one GCE AS Level. The BTEC Level 3 Certificate is also suitable for more mature learners, who wish to follow a vocational programme of study as part of their continued professional development or who want to move to a different area of employment. Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma 60 credits The 60-credit BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma extends the specialist work-related focus of the BTEC Level 3 Certificate qualification and covers the key knowledge and practical skills required in the appropriate vocational sector. The BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma offers greater flexibility and a choice of emphasis through the optional units. It is broadly equivalent to one GCE A Level. The BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma offers an engaging programme for those who are clear about the area of employment that they wish to enter. These learners may wish to extend their programme through the study of a general qualifications such as GCE AS Levels, additional specialist learning (eg through another BTEC qualification) or a complementary NVQ. These learning programmes can be developed to allow learners to study related and complementary qualifications without duplicating of content. For adult learners, the BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma can extend their experience of work in a particular sector. It may also be a suitable qualification for those wishing to change career or move into a particular area of employment following a career break. The predecessor qualification to the BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma is the Edexcel Level 3 BTEC National Award accredited onto the National Qualifications Framework, which has the same equivalences, overall size and focus as the revised QCF-accredited qualification. 3

10 Edexcel BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma 90 credits This qualification broadens and expands the specialist work-related focus of the BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma and encompasses the essential skills, knowledge and understanding needed to gain confidence and progression. There is potential for the qualification to prepare learners for progression within education or into employment in the appropriate vocational sector and it is suitable for those who have decided that they wish to study in detail or work in a particular area of work. It is broadly equivalent to 1.5 GCE A Levels and provides a programme of study manageable in a year so that learners can bank and then build on their achievement. In this way it encourages progression for those learners who wish to undertake a one-year course of study because of individual circumstances. Some learners may wish to gain the qualification in order to enter a specialist area of employment or to progress to a larger or different level 3 programme. Other learners may want to extend the specialism they studied on the BTEC Level 3 Certificate or the BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma programme. Learners may also be able to use the BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma to gain partial achievement and have the requisite skills, knowledge and understanding needed in the sector. For adult learners the BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma can extend their experience of working in a particular sector. It could also be a suitable qualification for those wishing to change career or move into a particular area of employment following a career break. Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Diploma 120 credits The 120-credit BTEC Level 3 Diploma broadens and expands the specialist work-related focus of the BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma and the BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma qualifications. There is potential for the qualification to prepare learners for employment in the appropriate vocational sector and it is suitable for those who have decided that they wish to enter a particular area of work. It is broadly equivalent to two GCE A Levels. Some learners may wish to gain the qualification in order to enter a specialist area of employment or to progress to a level 4 programme. Other learners may want to extend the specialism they studied on the BTEC Level 3 Certificate, BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma or the BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma programme. The predecessor qualification to the BTEC Level 3 Diploma is the Edexcel Level 3 BTEC National Certificate accredited onto the National Qualifications Framework, which has the same equivalences, overall size and focus to the revised QCF-accredited qualification. Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma 180 credits The 180-credit BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma extends and deepens the specialist work-related focus of the BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma and the BTEC Level 3 Diploma qualifications. There is potential for the qualification to prepare learners for appropriate direct employment in the vocational sector and it is suitable for those who have decided that they clearly wish to enter a particular specialist area of work. It is broadly equivalent to three GCE A Levels. Some learners may wish to gain the qualification in order to enter a specialist area of employment or to progress to a higher education foundation degree, HND or other professional development programme. Other learners may want to extend the specialist nature of the subjects they studied on the BTEC Level 3 Diploma or another programme of study. The predecessor qualification to the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma is the Edexcel Level 3 BTEC National Diploma accredited onto the National Qualifications Framework, which has the same equivalences, overall size and focus to the revised QCF-accredited qualification. 4

11 Key features of these BTEC qualifications in Applied Science The BTEC qualifications in this specification have been developed in the science sector to: l give learners the opportunity to acquire technical and employability skills, knowledge and understanding which are transferable and will enable individuals to meet changing circumstances, whether these arise from a shift in their own status or employment, or general changes in applied science practice, provision or environment l provide education and training for science employees to develop their underpinning knowledge and scientific skills l give science employees opportunities to achieve a nationally recognised level 3 vocationally-specific qualification l give full-time learners the opportunity to enter employment in the science sector or to progress to vocational qualifications such as the Edexcel BTEC Higher Nationals in Applied Biology, Applied Chemistry or health-related or other science-related qualifications l increase understanding of the role of the science technician or assistant practitioner, their relationship with the scientific community and their responsibilities towards the community and the environment l give learners the opportunity to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal skills and attributes essential for successful performance in working life. Rationale for these BTEC qualifications in Applied Science The Edexcel BTEC qualifications in this specification are a suite of qualifications that reflect aspects of employment within science organisations or organisations that use science and enable learners to develop practical scientific skills. These qualifications will appeal to learners who prefer portfolio-based assessment covering a variety of scientific investigations. Units within the qualification cover areas of laboratory science, forensic science, medical science, environmental science and biological, chemical and physical science to provide a route to employment in the science industry or within organisations that use science. These can include roles such as: l working as a quality control technician/analyst, where the employee works in a production plant laboratory carrying out analytical tests using modern instrumentation, ICT and data interpretation l working in a hospital as a medical physics technician supporting the use of X-ray and other imaging/ scanning equipment l working in a research laboratory in the development of new drugs. Managing projects that include setting up apparatus, measuring and handling chemical substances, following procedures, carrying out observations and measurements, separating and analysing products l working in the chemical industry, involved with testing materials l working with the forensic science service or using their analytical skills in the chemistry industry l working in chemical companies developing fertilisers and other plant feeds l working for a scientific magazine or journal, editing and proofreading articles on issues such as applications and implications of new scientific discoveries and developments l working in a biotechnology laboratory carrying out fermentation and purification processes. 5

12 National Occupational Standards These BTEC qualifications are designed to provide much of the underpinning knowledge and understanding for the National Occupational Standards (NOS), as well as developing practical skills in preparation for work and possible achievement of NVQs. NOS form the basis of National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs). The qualifications in this specification do not purport to deliver occupational competence in the sector, which should be demonstrated in a work context. Each unit in the specification identifies links to elements of the NOS that are addressed by the outcomes and content of the unit. The BTEC level 3 qualifications in Applied Science provide underpinning knowledge towards the Laboratory and Associated Technical Activities NOS at level 3 and relate to a number of units within the Laboratory Science NOS at level 3. See Annexe E for details of NOS mapping against units. 6
