BTECs are career-based qualifications designed to give students the skills they need to move on to higher education or go straight into employment. When combined with academic learning in a school or college (or as a stand-alone course in further or higher education), a BTEC develops a range of practical knowledge and skills which help learners to prepare for – and progress in – their chosen career. More employers and Higher Education institutions than ever before are choosing BTEC-qualified candidates for their academic and practical knowledge and skills
BTECs give students the skills they need to either move on to higher education or go straight into employment. BTEC qualifications can be taken as well as, or in place of, GCSEs and A
levels and alongside Diplomas in schools and colleges. They are valued by colleges, universities, employers and professional bodies across the United Kingdom and recognised throughout over 80 countries worldwide.
