  • Background to the centreMission StatementVision StatementBTECS at our centreWhat is a BTEC? BTECs are work-related qualifications suitable for a wide range of students; they are designed with the needs of employers and universities in mind. They provide a practical, real-world approach to learning without sacrificing any of the essential subject theory. They can be taken alongside, or in place of, GCSEs and A levels in schools and colleges. BTECs are recognised by schools, colleges, universities, employers and professional bodies across the United Kingdom and in over 100 countries worldwide. BTECs have been around for 25 years and their reputation is second to none. They continue to be developed and updated with and for industry and in response to the needs of learners.Why are BTECs important? BTECs are valued by a large number of organisations in a wide range of sectors. Employers value the qualities that BTEC students bring to the workplace (E.g.) organisation, time management, communication and research skills. 3© Subject Support 2012
  • They offer natural progression along a vocational path, from and to academic qualifications and university. BTEC qualifications are developed with people from industry and sector skills councils to ensure that they meet employer and student needs.What is a BTEC worth and where will it take me?LEVEL 2 2010 QUALIFICATIONSize Pass Merit Distinction Distinction*Certificate 1 Grade C 1 Grade B 1 Grade A 1 Grade AExtended 2 Grade C 2 Grade B 2 Grade A 2 Grade ACertificateDiploma 4 Grade C 4 Grade B 4 Grade A 4 Grade ALEVEL 2 2012/2013 QUALIFICATIONSSize L1 Pass L2 Pass L2 Merit L2 Distinction L2 Distinction*Award 1 Grade E/F 1 Grade C 1 Grade B 1 Grade A 1 Grade A*Certificate 2 Grade E/F 2 Grade C 2 Grade B 2 Grade A 2 Grade A*Extended 3 Grade E/F 3 Grade C 3 Grade C 3 Grade A 3 Grade A*Certificate 4© Subject Support 2012
