BTECs are high quality, hands-on qualifications grounded in the real world of work.
Taken as a main course, alongside GCSEs and A levels, or as part of an apprenticeship, a BTEC's all about learning by doing to help your child develop the practical knowledge and skills employers and universities are looking for.
It’s so much more than just a certificate. BTEC-qualified students keep applying what they learn at university and throughout their future career.
What employers and universities are saying
Peter Jones CBE, entrepreneur and businessman
“BTEC courses give young people real, hands-on experience in their chosen careers. It’s what I call ‘learning by doing’ and means you’ll be genuinely job ready.”
Collette Burgess, BTEC teacher at West Suffolk College
“I feel so proud and privileged to be apart of my students successful futures in their careers, not just the students who choose to go to university, but those who choose to go into the workplace as well.”
Lisa du Lieu, Senior Lecturer at Huddersfield University
“BTEC students have a particular set of skills that prepares them really well for university, in particular the ability to work independently.”
