We currently teach a one year (5 lessons a week) level 2 first certificate course (= 2 GCSE's). Been on the Edexcel website to look at the new BTEC's available from Sept 2012. Can only find a spec or the First Award (= 1 GCSE), which is available for teaching from 2012 and certification in 2013. It does not mention the Certificate. Does anyone know if this will be available for teaching in one year from this September? Thanks for any advice out there - I am a new HOD.
