Did you know… Around 1 in 4 learners in the UK enter higher education with a BTEC qualification – that’s over 100,000 learners a year (HESA)  

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.  

A BTEC qualification can open doors to university, an apprenticeship or an exciting new career; and is important for preparing young people and adults with the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed for the jobs of the future. 

In these times of economic fluctuation and uncertainty, BTEC qualifications give learners a balance of the skills and knowledge needed to progress into the careers they want.  It is this practical approach that allows learners to develop and apply the knowledge, traits and behaviours to real-life scenarios; ensuring they are uniquely prepared with a range of entrepreneurial and employability characteristics that employers and universities are looking for. 

They are also a powerful driver of social mobility that benefits employers, our economy and our communities.  

In turn, those skills enable learners to flourish in our competitive world of rapid technological change and aid them in enjoying a career fuelled by passion and purpose.

After 35 years of proven success, more and more Higher Education institutions and employers are choosing BTEC-qualified candidates for their practical knowledge and employability skills.

In fact, 300 employers & 75 professional bodies supported the development of the latest BTEC Level 3 Nationals, confirming BTEC qualifications provide learners with the specialist knowledge an capabilities that employers are seeking.

Below are a few more stats that solidify the effectiveness of BTECs:

  • 90% of BTEC students are employed full time after graduation (Progression Pathways, 2016)  
  • 72% of UK employers believe BTEC candidates have an advantage over non-BTEC candidates (Perspectus Global, 2021)  
  • 76% of BTEC students opted for BTEC because they could learn by doing, getting practical hands-on experience while studying (Pearson BTEC Learner Survey, 2019)  
  • 72% of UK employers believe BTEC candidates have an advantage over non-BTEC candidates (Perspectus Global, 2021)
