The BTEC Awards recognise the hard work and dedication of BTEC learners, educators and providers from across the globe. Every year, we receive nominations containing truly inspiring stories.

For our judges, 2022 was no exception. We were in awe of the learners who gave everything to their study; the teachers and tutors for whom it's so much 'more than a job' and the outstanding providers blazing a trail for excellence and opportunity.

We are now delighted to announce the full list of Bronze, Silver and Gold BTEC Award winners from the BTEC Awards this year. Read more about our incredible winners as you join us in recognising their talents, perseverance and commitment.
