What is the Standalone BTEC?

Around 25% of university students in Britain today have gained their place with a BTEC qualification.

The Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) provides specialist and career-related learning relevant to a range of sectors. BTEC is the world’s most successful applied learning brand and can be delivered as a standalone qualification, or an integral part of the IBCP. The Level 3 qualification is an excellent route to employment, apprenticeships, or university.

The BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Business is a qualification that offers learners the opportunity to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal skills, and attributes essential for successful performance in working life. Students develop the qualities they need to enter employment in the business sector or to progress to vocational qualifications or university. 60% of the course is through course work assessment and 40% through external examinations.

The aims for BTEC Business are to give students:

• Practical experience from real world assignments
• Responsibility for their own learning
• A chance to develop interpersonal and practical thinking skills
• A strong core base of knowledge
• Real experience of effective teamwork
• The ability to work to a brief with set deadlines
• The ability to manage time efficiently to complete tasks and processes.
