BTec: ‘Welsh solution needed’ for qualifications

A “made in Wales” solution is needed to tackle issues with qualifications as students await BTec results, the head of Colleges Wales has said.

Iestyn Davies said more needed to be done to support students with an increase in Wales-specific vocational courses being introduced next year.

BTec results were delayed by exam board Pearson last week, leaving thousands awaiting their marks for the year.

Pearson apologised for the delay and said no grades would be lowered.
