BTECs are mainly designed for over 16 year olds but some schools do offer them for learners as young as 14. You can either study for a BTEC full or part time, at school or college.
BTECs are always vocational or work-related courses and designed to answer specific employer needs, which means you're gaining skills that employers will find really useful and make you a great prospect in the jobs market. They also allow you to go onto further and higher education, earning you:
- Equivalent points to AS and A levels
