Pearsons BTEC Tech award in Performing Arts and Music Practice

We are experienced at planning and delivering BTEC Tech Awards, vocational qualifications for 14-16 year olds equivalent to GCSE’s. Working alongside accredited schools we take responsibility for designing the course, preparing all learning material and facilitating lessons.

BTECs are high-quality, career-focused qualifications grounded in the real world of work. Courses focus on skills-based learning and are designed around themed units. This practical approach allows BTEC learners to develop and apply the knowledge and skills that employers, colleges and universities are looking for.
