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 had twelve members from across London taking part in this opportunity – worth 30 credits to those who complete the full course – which may assist with university applications. Studying took place over a number of zoom sessions as restrictions stopped us from meeting face-to-face. The units which were completed include:

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

Any member who had completed a Duke of Edinburgh award, only needed to complete unit 1 as the work they had done for their Duke of Edinburgh award counts towards the BTEC qualification.

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.

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