BTEC Nationals are designed as specialist qualifications for students who have a clear view of their future career or are seeking progression to higher education. They are equivalent to A levels and are highly valued by universities, further education colleges and employers alike. All BTECs are unit based and offer a choice for the students to select from to match their interests. They are recommended for those who have achieved at least five A*-C grade GCSEs including Mathematics and English or have completed a BTEC First with distinction. Students develop practical skills that they know employers will value and which will help them get a job in the future.
