What is a BTEC?

Vocational learning or applied learning qualifications help students acquire knowledge, skills and understanding through practical, work-related activities in a real-life context so they can apply what they have learned.
When combined with academic learning in a school, vocational learning develops a range of practical knowledge and skills which help you prepare for and progress in your chosen career.

BTEC has earned its reputation as the world’s most successful applied learning qualification, providing students with a clear line of sight into work. Encouraging students to take responsibility for their own learning.

BTEC develops the practical, interpersonal and thinking skills essential for professional life.
