BTEC Qualifications

BTEC Higher National qualifications are widely recognized by industry and higher education authorities around the world, as the principal technical professional qualification at Levels 4 and 5. Developed in conjunction with employers, students, and professional bodies, BTEC Higher Nationals offer students real experience, opportunities and comprehensive qualifications that will benefit their chosen career.

    BTECs are all about learning by practicing and that means BTEC students put what they learn into practice straight away. Throughout the course, they are introduced to a series of real life case-studies and examples, interactive tests and assignments set in real-life scenarios, developing the practical knowledge and skills employers and universities are looking for. It’s so much more than just a certificate – BTEC-qualified students will keep applying what they learn on their BTEC course as they progress to university or a job – and throughout their future career.90% of BTEC students are employed full-time after graduating.

    BTEC Assessment

    BTECs are not exam-based qualifications. Exams work well for some students but others find them rather daunting and struggle to see how they fit into the real world of work. Instead, students study real-life, work-based case studies and complete projects and assessments, which contribute to achieving each course studied.

    Each BTEC is made up of courses. In order to complete each course, students must achieve against a set of outcomes. The assessment criteria address theory with practical exercises. The assessment process is ongoing, so it allows the student to analyze and improve their own performance through their course in much the same way as they would in a real workplace.

    Grading Higher National Courses

    The grading of BTEC Higher National qualifications is at the course and the qualification level. Each successfully completed course will be graded as a Pass, Merit or Distinction.

    • A Pass is awarded for the achievement of all outcomes against the specified assessment criteria.
    • Merit and Distinction grades are awarded for higher level achievement.
