Why choose a BTEC qualification?
The Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) is a provider (existing as part of Pearson Education Ltd) of secondary school leaving qualifications and further education qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland recognised by over 40 countries worldwide.
BTECs originated in 1984 and were awarded by Edexcel from 1996. Their origins lie in the Business Education Council, formed in 1974 to "rationalise and improve the relevance of sub-degree vocational education".
Achieving a globally recognised BTEC qualification that is also recognised by government regulatory bodies such as Ofqual and the Security Industry Authority (SIA) in the United Kingdom will certainly improve your prospects as it demonstrates that you have achieved a distinguishable standard.
