BTECs help develop your entrepreneurial skillset
A recent Times article states that, “there is, according to Sir Charlie Mayfield, the former chairman of John Lewis who now runs the digital training company QA, a damaging 'disconnect' between the education system and the employment market. Almost 90 per cent of business leaders say that they have, or are expecting, serious skills shortages and 44 per cent of employers feel that young people leaving education are not 'work-ready',” but BTEC learners don’t face that problem.
What sets BTEC apart from other qualifications is that they are high-quality, career-focused qualifications grounded in the real world of work. This means BTEC learners develop and apply the knowledge, skills, and behaviours that employers, universities, and higher education institutions are looking for.
BTEC qualifications develop skills like:
- Independent learning
- Confidence and leadership skills
- Employability skills and knowledge of the workplace
