BTEC Firsts offer level 2 learners an engaging introduction to life and work in a vocational sector.
Students develop knowledge and understanding by applying their learning and skills in a work-related context.
Taken as part of a balanced curriculum, BTEC Firsts provide a tried-and-trusted progression route to further study, to an apprenticeship or into employment.
