WHY ARE BTECS SO SUCCESSFUL?

BTECs embody a fundamentally learner-centred approach to the curriculum, with a flexible, unit-based structure and knowledge applied in project-based assessments. They focus on the holistic development of the practical, interpersonal and thinking skills required to be able to succeed in employment and higher education.

When creating the BTEC Nationals in this suite, Pearson worked with many employers, higher education providers, colleges and schools to ensure that their needs were met. Employers are looking for recruits with a thorough grounding in the latest industry requirements and work-ready skills such as teamwork. Higher education needs students who have experience of research, extended writing and meeting deadlines.

Pearson has addressed these requirements with:

  • a range of BTEC sizes, each with a clear purpose, so there is something to suit each learner’s choice of study programme and progression plans
  • refreshed content that is closely aligned with employers’ and higher education needs for a skilled future workforce
  • assessments and projects chosen to help learners progress to the next stage. This means some are set by you to meet local needs, while others are set and marked by Pearson so that there is a core of skills and understanding that is common to all learners. For example, a written test can be used to check that learners are confident in using technical knowledge to carry out a certain job.

For the Learners

Today’s BTEC Nationals are demanding, as you would expect of the most respected applied learning qualification in the UK. You will have to choose and complete a range of units, be organised, take some assessments that we will set and mark, and keep a portfolio of your assignments. But you can feel proud to achieve a BTEC because, whatever your plans in life – whether you decide to study further, go for a promotion or set up your own business – your BTEC National will be your passport to success in the next stage of your life.

Slills for Care

The Care Certificate is the beginning of the career journey for those new to care. It is a foundation for health and adult social care integration and ensures those new to the sector are supported. It is endorsed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and is an expectation i.e. all employers should now be offering it.

Although the Care Certificate is designed for new staff, it also offers opportunities for existing staff to refresh or improve their knowledge.
