Join our showcase

An exclusive chance for your students to perform at the BTEC Awards 2017!

The BTEC Awards is all about showcasing talent, so this year we’re giving BTEC students the chance to put their skills in the spotlight – literally!

We've launched the BTEC Awards Showstopper Challenge: an open call for talented acts to come and perform before our star-studded crowd at the ceremony.  

There are no set rules, except:

  • The performance should be based on the theme of "The Future"
  • Performances should be no more than 5 minutes long
  • All performers must be current BTEC students aged 14 or above

The prize: The judging panel will select three winning acts (individuals and/or groups) who will be invited to attend and perform live at the BTEC Awards ceremony, to be held in London on Thursday 6th July. All performers will receive a special BTEC award and certificate.

Join our crew

Calling all BTEC Media students!

We’re looking for a talented team of BTEC Media students to come to London to help us capture all the action at the BTEC Awards ceremony on Thursday 6th July.  

As a team, you'll be in charge of planning, filming, presenting and producing backstage footage of the BTEC Awards 2017. As well as reporting live through BTEC social media channels on the day, you'll be required to film a 'backstage report' video which will be published on our website and social media after the ceremony.  

This is a unique opportunity for you and your classmates to lead a prestigious film project and get some impressive work experience to add to your CV! 

The brief

Teams are invited to record a short video report that seeks to answer the question: ‘Why choose BTEC?'

We're looking for a news bulletin-style report which seeks to investigate and communicate why an increasing number of students are choosing to study BTECs. Your video could feature interviews with BTEC students and teachers, vox pops or any other content you feel helps to answer the question.

Videos must be no more than 5 minutes long and under 300MB. Read our full Rules of Entry

How to enter

Entries must be made by the teams’ tutor/teacher on their behalf to with "BTEC Awards Backstage Report" in the subject line.

Entrants must send:   

  • A completed entry form for their team
  • Signed consent forms for all team members and contributors featured in the video
  • Their video via filesharing site (e.g. Dropbox), with the message "BTEC Awards Backstage Report + centre name"

Deadline for entries: 30th April
