Pearson BTEC

BTEC are career-based qualifications designed to give students the skills they need to move on to higher education or go straight into employment.

When combined with academic learning in a school or college (or as a stand-alone course in further or higher education), a BTEC develops a range of practical knowledge and skills which help learners to prepare for – and progress in – their chosen career.

Classroom style teaching combined with project work and practical, work-related activities help to develop students’ behavioral skills, which can include teamwork, creative thinking and presentation skills.
