BTEC (Business Technical Education Council) courses are vocational-related training courses that prepare you to enter either into a higher education degree program, or directly into employment. BTECs are developed with key representatives from their respective industry and are built to progress the learner along a vocational path. The courses are continually updated with employers’ needs in mind so that you are given the knowledge, skills and tools most suitable for your field. BTECs also provide direct advancement into university programmes.

BTEC HNDs (Higher National Diplomas) are at the fifth level of the BTEC scale. They are worth 240 credits and are equivalent to a Foundation Degree or HE (Higher Education) Diploma.

You can take BTEC courses together with, or instead of A-levels.
