ABOUT ADULT LEARNING
Developed in partnership with employers, over 240,000 adult learners take BTEC qualifications and courses every year.
We continually adapt and innovate our curriculum and learning to ensure it is relevant for adults and to ensure it supports progression and career aspirations throughout lives.
The BTEC curriculum follows a modular approach, allowing adults to engage in bitesize learning, take up short courses or a full 2-year programme – supporting progression to further study, into employment, enterprise or upskilling.
BTECs also provide adult learners with valuable employability skills such as resilience, flexibility, communication skills, judgment and decision making, critical thinking and more. These skills are especially valuable in a changing world where job roles are likely to continue to change and the emphasis from industry and employers is increasingly on flexibility, adaptability and transferable skills.
