CVQO – our partner in delivering BTEC Qualifications, will be holding a BTEC awareness evening for Uniformed Youth Groups in Croydon and South West London. The event will be held on Monday 25th April at Royal Russell School commencing at 1915 hours. We would be delighted if Boys’ Brigade members and their leadership teams could please join us for the evening to find out more about CVQO and our Qualifications. We are also delighted that Professor Simon Denny the author the Northampton Report will be joining us on the night to give a keynote address on his report about the benefit of the BTEC qualification to those in uniformed youth organisations.
On this evening CVQO will be showcasing their flagship BTEC Level 2 qualification which is the Teamwork and personal development in the community which is fully funded for our members if they fulfil the following criteria. The evening would clearly be more beneficial to them but all are welcome.
