Nurturing future career pathways with BTEC
BTEC (Business Technology Education Council) qualifications are flexible – you can take one alongside (or instead of) GCSEs and A levels in schools and colleges. Multkids offers BTECs in Business, ICT, Performing Arts and Art.
BTECs are divided into units, which cover specific areas of knowledge, skills, and understanding required by the particular sector or industry.
Every BTEC student takes the core units, which provide a broad foundation and understanding about the sector, as well as Functional English and Functional Maths.
There is a range of optional units to choose from which enable students to focus on particular interests and plans they have for next steps into further study, an apprenticeship, or employment.
The course involves a series of assignments which can be written or activity-based, for example creating a film clip, planning and putting on a performance, or creating a business plan. Students complete some assignments individually and some as part of a team. For some BTEC courses, students can also apply their knowledge and skills through work experience.
Multikid’s BTEC Students can typically progress to careers in Media and Technology, Fashion, Computer Technology, Business and Entrepreneurship.
