Step One - Prepare a performance piece

Have a discussion with your students about which routines or performances they have most enjoyed and feel they are strongest in - you could use a piece from a previous unit.

Step Three - Fill in our Showstopper Challenge form

This details who your learners are and the performance they are entering with. Please fill this in carefully and correctly. You'll also need to get signed consent forms from your learners.

Step Two - Film your BTEC learners

Record your learners performing their piece (bear in mind, you don’t have to send us your first recording!).

Step Four - Submit your entry

Please send your entry video to, along with your Showstopper Challenge and consent forms. Please use the subject line: “BTEC Awards Showstopper Challenge + <centre name>”.
