Business Technology Education Council EDEXCEL, Examination Board

BTEC qualifications are vocational and work-related, built to accommodate the needs of employers and are developed in partnership with industry representatives.

A BTEC takes a practical approach to learning, without missing any of the important theory on the subject; this means you can demonstrate your skills and knowledge through a practical situation.

There are three levels to a BTEC, Award, Certificate and Diploma. BTECs are flexible; they can be taken alongside, or in place of, GCSEs and A levels and alongside Diplomas in schools and colleges.
