It’s that time of the year when tutors and teachers are extra busy showcasing course options to prospective students. With options evenings or open days already in the diary, helping learners choose qualifications that suit their learning style and needs, can be tricky. Which is why Pearson has launched a free BTEC Options tool, which will help you showcase the specific BTEC courses your centre offers.

It’s never been easier for current and prospective learners to explore how a BTEC qualification can open doors to university, an apprenticeship, or into the world of work.

BTECs are important qualifications for preparing young people and adults with the knowledge and skills needed for the jobs of the future. Particularly in these times of economic flux and uncertainty. BTEC qualifications give learners a balance of the skills and knowledge they need to progress into the careers they want and by teaching BTEC, colleges can create a broad, balanced and diverse curriculum in their local community for all learners.

Career-focused education is also a powerful driver of social mobility that benefits employers, our economy and our communities. The jobs of the future will require uniquely human skills.

Studying a BTEC can help learners of all ages apply their study in real-life scenarios, ensuring they are uniquely prepared with a range of entrepreneurial and employability skills. Those skills enable them to flourish in our competitive world of rapid technological change, and to enjoy a career fuelled by passion and purpose.

The new BTEC Options tool is specifically designed to help you talk to students and parents about their next steps.  The tool is easy to use, engaging and interactive. What’s more, it allows you to focus solely on the BTEC subjects offered by your centre, offering a wealth of customisable information that will help you recruit and retain learners on their journey to success.

Students and parents can access:

  • A tailored online webpage that shows the BTEC courses your centre offers
  • An interactive careers quiz
  • Subject-specific information
  • Employability skills students will develop on the course
  • A range of career options after studying BTEC
  • Stories from BTEC students and employers in all subject areas
  • A unique URL so that they can browse in their own time.

If you have specific questions about BTEC or need further help or support for Options 2021 you can also contact Pearson on Twitter at @TeachBTEC with your questions, and they’ll get straight back to you.
