Find all the information and support you'll need to teach and study your new BTEC Nationals in Business from 2016.
Introducing your new BTEC Nationals in Business
An introduction to the business sector for learners for whom an element of business would be complementary. The qualification supports progression to higher education when taken as part of a programme of study that includes other vocational or general qualifications.
The Extended Certificate is for learners who are interested in learning about the business sector alongside other fields of study, with a view to progressing to a wide range of higher education courses, not necessarily in business-related subjects.
The Foundation Diploma is for learners looking to study business as a one-year, full-time course, or for those wishing to take it alongside another area of contrasting or complementary study, as part of a two-year, full-time study programme.
The Diploma is designed to be the substantive part of a study programme for learners who want a strong core of sector study. This programme may include other BTEC Nationals to support progression to higher education courses in business areas before entering employment.
The Extended Diploma is a two-year, full-time course that meets entry requirements in its own right for learners who want to progress to higher education courses in business areas before entering employment.
