What is a BTEC?

BTECs (which stands for the Business & Technology Education Council) are highquality, careerfocused qualifications grounded in the real world of work.  

BTEC courses focus on skills-based learning and are designed around themed units. Rather than testing everything at the end, BTECs are tested throughout the course using assessments based on real-life scenarios.  

This practical approach allows learners to develop and apply the knowledgeskills and behaviours that employers and universities are looking for.

What Schools Say About Us

Being part of the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub has been pivotal to the development of careers provision in our school. The Hub have shared good practice across their members resulting in a stronger focus on good quality provision. The annual event enabled the hub to share their vision of School Improvement Through The Lens of Careers and looking beyond the Benchmarks. It was a fantastic opportunity to share different models of school improvement and strategies to further develop careers provision to enhance the future opportunities of our young people.

Educating those who educate the ones shaping the aspirations of young people is essential for the industry to grow and be more sustainable.”
