BTECs are developed with employers and higher education experts, so you can trust that anyone with a BTEC will demonstrate the high standards of knowledge, practical skills and understanding required for further study and employment.

You will complete a range of units, be organised, take assessments that will demonstrate your skills and keep a portfolio of your assignments.
