  4. Good luck in your course planning.
    As well as planning your course, you also need to plan assessents and assignment briefs and look at the process of Internal Verification of the briefs- before they are given to the students. You also need to have marked work IV'd as you will have a visit from your External verifier between January and the end of April each year. The EV comes in to do National Standards Sampling - and you need to have some assessed and IV'd work complete with evidence etc ready for the EV visit.
    I'm an EV for performing arts/music as well as running a busy performing arts dept in a college of FE. I have seen lots of centres - particularly schools, who have a real problem when it comes to NSS for the first time as a lot of the training courses do not mention NSS and IV/EV processes and how to prepare - if they have no other btec's running at the centre there is no one to advise.
    Look in to this process early on and be prepared!
     
  5. Hi

    We're launching level 2 BTEC Performing Arts (Performance) in September. I have a clue where to start! If you would be willing to share some SOW with me I would be grateful.
    Thanks in anticipation

  7. Hiya,

    I am also in a similar situation and am introducing the BTEC and I wondered if I could have some hints and tips as well. This is a really useful post, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Massive thanks,

  12. Hiya Hannah

    Did you manage to get a SOW for level 2 performing arts? If so is there any chance you can send it to me? Sorry to be cheeky but I have a SOW that is falling apart and I feel like I am ready to be fitted for a straight jacket!! I am teaching level 1 and 2 combined and I am drowning in work. I think a tried and tested SOW would really help the cause!
