What is a BTEC?
A BTEC is so much more than a qualification – it focuses on skills-based learning and are designed around themed units. This practical approach allows BTEC learners to develop and apply the knowledge and skills that employers and universities are looking for, and that means there are plenty of opportunities to learn, improve and succeed.
Explore and learn how former BTEC students often say, how they continue to apply what they learned on their BTEC course, when they progress on to further study, or starting a job; and as they advance throughout their career.
Also hear from Educators, and Parents how it has helped their learners and children.
