BTEC Level 3 Science
“Vocational qualifications are becoming increasingly attractive to employers particularly as they encourage students to develop real-life, 21st century skills such as problem-solving and team work. They also play an important role in promoting social mobility. Our own research finds businesses either prefer new recruits to hold a mix of both academic and vocational qualifications, or value academic and vocational qualifications equally. Perhaps that’s why more students now go to university with a BTEC than ever before.”
