Technical Awards: 2019 summer update published

Thursday 31 Aug 2017

The Department for Education (DfE) has published the summer update to the approved list of qualifications that will be eligible for inclusion in the 2019 performance tables. This latest update only includes qualifications submitted before and during March 2017.

Unfortunately our new Technical Award in STEM for first assessment in 2019 has not yet been approved. We're working with the DfE to understand the issues with this qualification.

The DfE are still considering our remaining Technical Awards that we submitted in June 2017 (Children’s Learning & Development, Fashion and Textiles, Food and Catering, Health and Social Care, IT, Material Technology, Performing Arts, Sport, and Visual Communication).

We expect the outcome of these submissions to be published in the next few weeks – in the final update of the approved list. We'll provide you with a further update as soon as we have any additional information.
