2020 league table points
We have been advised by TQUK that the Department for Education has now advised all Awarding Organisations of their third update to the approved list of qualifications. The revised Design Engineer Construct! The Digital Built Environment model has not yet been approved for inclusion in the 2020 performance tables. TQUK are currently appealing this decision with a deadline of 6th August.

We will update you on the outcome of this appeal as soon as possible after 6th August, but be assured - we remain committed to the inclusion of Design Engineer Construct! The Digital Built Environment as a relevant, robust and rigorous learning programme and qualification which continues to meet the needs of DEC schools throughout England.

Please note, schools outside England are not affected.
