What is BTEC?
BTEC Specialist and BTEC Professional qualifications are designed to give learners the knowledge, understanding and skills that they need to prepare for employment, as well as provide career development opportunities for those already in work.
BTEC qualifications are awarded by the Edexcel exam board and are taken in more than 100 countries at all levels, from pre-GCSE to Degree equivalent. They are vocational and work-related courses, designed to accommodate the needs of employers and allow students to progress to further and higher education. A BTEC takes a practical approach to learning, without missing any of the important theory on the subject. BTECs are extremely reputable, having been around for 25 years now, so rest assured you will be embarking on an excellent course.
BTEC is the world’s most successful and best-loved applied learning brand and has been engaging learners in practical, interpersonal and thinking skills for over 25 years. BTECs are work-related qualifications, suitable for a wide range of learners, which are designed to accommodate the needs of employers as well as allowing progression to university.
They provide a more practical, real-world approach to learning alongside a theoretical background, and can be taken as well as, or instead of, GCSEs in school and colleges or through training providers such as Tavcom.
