Teachers use BTEC to offer a different way of learning, discovering untapped potential and achievement beyond expectations.
If your students struggle with anxiety and stress when facing traditional end-of-course exams, then BTEC qualifications could be a good option for you.
BTEC’s practical, hands-on approach means teachers can motivate their students by showing how classroom learning relates to real-life careers and employment.
The invaluable employability skills students learn on a BTEC course build self-esteem and confidence, allow their own ambitions to develop, and give them the motivation to invest in their studies.
BTEC’s unit-based structure and practical learning style helps teachers prepare each individual student for their next step, whether that’s a job, training or further study.
Whatever path students choose when they leave school, offering BTEC as part of a broad curriculum means they can choose a subject and learning style which suits them, develop their personal interests, and invest in the knowledge and skills to help them thrive in the future.
