BTEC Opportunities

Partnering CVQO to offer BTEC qualifications to our members

We are pleased to be able to partner with CVQO in trialling a project to enable our members aged 16 to 18 to attain a formal BTEC qualification, which provides formal recognition for their participation in Boys’ Brigade activities.

BTEC Level 2 Extended Certificate in Teamwork and Personal Development in the Community

We have fifteen spaces available for this opportunity – worth 30 credits to those who complete the full course – which may assist with university applications. Studying will take place on up to four zoom sessions, which will be interactive and enjoyable. Prior to completing any of the units, those members who are taking part in this opportunity will be required to attend an information and guidance session. The units which will then be completed include:

  • Unit 1 – Teamwork & Communication Skills
  • Unit 4 – Improving Health & Fitness
  • Unit 9 – Volunteering

Any member who has completed a Duke of Edinburgh award, will only need to complete unit 1 as the work they have done for their Duke of Edinburgh award will count towards the BTEC qualification.

The dates for each session are as follows:

Information & guidance session – Friday 27th November 2020 – 19:00-20:00
Unit 1 – Teamwork & Communication Skills – Monday 30th November 2020 – 19:00-21:00
Unit 4 – Improving Health & Fitness – Date to be confirmed
Unit 9 – Volunteering – Date to be confirmed.

In order to be eligible, members must have been aged 16 on or before the 31st August 2020 and must still be aged 18 by the time they complete the course. They must also have access to a computer to be able to log into the zoom sessions.

Please contact us via email at if you have any of your members that will be interested in taking part in this opportunity.
