What are BTECs?

BTECs are vocationally related qualifications, where learners develop knowledge and understanding by applying their learning and skills in a work-related context. Additionally, they are popular and effective because they engage learners to take responsibility for their own learning and to develop skills that are essential for the modern-day workplace. These skills include: teamworking; working from a prescribed brief; working to deadlines; presenting information effectively; and accurately completing administrative tasks and processes. BTEC Firsts motivate learners, and open doors to progression into further study and responsibility within the workplace.

Children’s Play, Learning and Development

BTEC Children’s Play, Learning and Development is an exciting new qualification which is designed to:

● inspire and enthuse learners to consider a career in early years, teaching or related sectors, where knowledge of child development is relevant

● give learners the opportunity to gain a broad knowledge and understanding of the early years sector and using play to promote child development

● support progression to a more specialised level 3 vocational or academic course, such as in early years, health and social care or psychology, or an apprenticeship.
