7 BTEC qualification titles covered by this specification Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Information Technology Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Information Technology Edexcel BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma in Information Technology Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Information Technology Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Information Technology These qualifications have been accredited to the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) and are eligible for public funding as determined by the Education (DfE) under Section 96 of the Learning and Skills Act The qualification titles listed above feature in the funding lists published annually by the DfE and the regularly updated website The Qualification Number (QN) should be used by centres when they wish to seek public funding for their learners. As well as a QN, each unit within a qualification also has a QCF unit reference number (URN). The qualification title, QN and URNs will appear on learners final certification documentation. The QNs for the qualifications in this publication are: Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Certificate in IT (QCF) 500/9148/7 Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in IT (QCF) 500/9147/5 Edexcel BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma in IT (QCF) 600/3887/1 Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Diploma in IT (QCF) 500/9150/5 Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT (QCF) 500/9149/9 The appropriate qualification title will appear on the a learners certificate. Learners need to be made aware of this when they are recruited by the centre and registered with Edexcel. 1

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 IT l Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in IT l Edexcel BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma in IT l Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Diploma in IT l Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT. 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 ( The QCF is a framework which awards credit for qualifications and units, presenting 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 those 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 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 (for example through another BTEC qualification) or a complementary NVQ. These learning programmes can be developed to allow learners to study related and complementary qualifications without duplication 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 from the BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma and the BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma. 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 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 from the BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma and the BTEC Level 3 Diploma. 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 Level 3 BTEC 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 the BTEC Nationals in IT The BTEC qualifications in this specification have been developed in the IT sector to: l give education and training for IT employees l give IT employees opportunities to achieve a nationally recognised level 3 vocationally-specific qualification l give full-time learners the opportunity to enter employment in the IT sector or to progress to vocational qualifications such as the Edexcel BTEC Higher Nationals in Computing and Systems Development 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 IT BTEC Level 3 qualifications that are designed to provide specialist work-related qualifications in a range of sectors. They give learners the knowledge, understanding and skills that they need to prepare them for employment. The qualifications also provide career development opportunities for those already in work. Consequently they can provide a course of study for full-time or part-time learners in schools, colleges and training centres. The family of BTEC Level 3 in IT qualifications includes Certificate, Subsidiary Diploma, 90-credit Diploma, Diploma and Extended Diploma which offer opportunities for nested provision and flexibility of delivery. BTEC Level 3 in IT qualifications are designed to relate to the National Occupational Standards for the sector, where these are appropriate, and are supported by the relevant Standards Setting Body (SSB) or Sector Skills Council (SSC). Some BTEC Level 3 in IT qualifications form the technical certificate component of apprenticeships and all attract UCAS points that equate to similar-sized general qualifications. On successful completion of a BTEC Level 3 in IT qualification, learners can progress into or within employment and/or continue their study in the same vocational area. This specification provides content and structures that help learners to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to work as professionals in the IT sector. Key aspects are: l reduced set of mandatory units so that the centre and learners can choose appropriate sets and combinations to meet their interests and aspirations l fully embedded vendor awards with no requirement for double assessment. l units based on the National Occupational Standards and contextualised to the IT environment l simple and consistent nesting of qualifications to allow learners to choose specialist pathways later in their programmes of study l use of some level 2 vendor units from the BTEC Level 2 in IT qualification as optional units l embedded units from the Business and Creative Media BTEC Level 3 qualifications l the ability to bring defined units in from other sectors using the Meeting Local Needs process. 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. The Edexcel BTEC Level 3 qualifications in IT relate to e-skills UK IT Professional NOS. At the time of publication, this specification contains the underpinning knowledge and understanding expressed in the latest standards and is fully supported by e-skills. 6
