BTEC Nationals are career-based vocational oriented qualifications designed to give students the skills they need to move on to higher education or go straight into employment.
The BTEC Level 3 Diplomas are broadly equivalent to GCE A Levels. BTEC Nationals are well regarded by universities, further education colleges, and employers. A BTEC National qualification can lead to employment, continuing study, or professional development programmes.
The programme aims to provide students with an in depth understanding of the operations and structures of businesses and also to equip students with the skills required to succeed in employment or at university. The course will involve businesses in the public, private and voluntary sectors.
